CCH SureTax

It is really well suited for accountants that simply prepare the returns and need accurate data. This makes the review process much quicker. If you do not have WorkStream connected it is tough to track the progress of a project. You have to check the reports daily to see if you have any work to do

Besides, Lovat has well-explained tax policies, which are essential in noting or understanding the entire business operations. Lastly, for filing returns, Lovatis the savior, for small enterprise.

Pros

CCH SureTax

  • The ability to eliminate errors is an excellent feature. The program auto populates the sales and use tax forms as well as validates addresses
  • This integrates with Microsoft Dynamics which allows you to run automated processes and track the progress on each project.
  • It also auto populates the sales tax forms and has error messages so you can be sure to have accurate data and not receive notices.

LOVAT

  • First of all, this is the pricing, it is really small for such processes even if you want to add any additional services.
  • Integration with our web shop directly in the account. All data from our store with few clicks.

Cons

CCH SureTax

  • The reporting system is really limited and hard to define useful reporting.
  • A really clunky system and not intuitive to use.
  • The error messages are really vague and you have to "guess" occasionally why the error is there.

LOVAT

  • They have live chat support only during working hours. It would be great to have a 24/7 live chat.
  • LOVAT should be quite flexible for some editing.
  • LOVAT should include a CRM solution, which could be a better way.

LOVAT

Lovat has a design that is well explained, something which is not seen on many of these applications. Again, Lovat has full information and features on dealing with tax, from the filing of returns, to even the deduction of taxes in different business activities. Finally, Lovat is applicable globally, meaning, different states can comfortably use the tool
