CCH has expanded its research resources with the CCH Expert Treatise Library, with the initial treatise covering the taxation of compensation and benefits.

The new treatise library will feature titles for customers in a variety of key practice areas. The treatise is available through CCH’s IntelliConnect research service–providing links to cited state and federal source documents contained in each customers’ other CCH subscription content.

CCH Expert Treatise Library: Taxation of Compensation and Benefits, written by David Cartano and reviewed by Carol A. Cantrell, covers a wide range of compensation and benefits law and rules, stock compensation arrangements, retirement plans and related topics. Compensation and benefits is a focus of legislative, regulatory and judiciary attention, and the rules and practice are constantly changing. CH’s expert authors will provide insights and guidance on a wide range of new developments and complex employee benefit changes.

Separately, CCH also recently announced that it has enhanced its CorpSystem Sales Tax Office software with the ability to import business locations into the system to expedite jurisdictional configuration; import “Usage Items” with their associated Group/Item mapping for purchase items to expedite procurement configuration; import SKUs with their associated system Group/Item mapping into the system to expedite configuration relating to sales transactions; and create “multistate” customer exemption records for a single customer in Customer Exemption Management to streamline multistate exemption configuration.

Sales Tax Office also comes with additional flexibility to export transactional data from Sales Tax Office to Sales Tax Returns Online based on either “Transaction Date” or “Invoice Date”; override system-generated “Situsing/Sourcing” decision logic on a state-by-state basis so a user can change a system generated sales tax to a use tax, or a use tax to a sales tax – while maintaining the global Situsing/Sourcing logic selected for other states; accept and process “zero dollar” line item(s) associated with a no-charge transactions such as replacement items and customer giveaways; and select from multiple install methodologies including “Complete,” “STO Server Only” or “Web Services Only” to better facilitate a variety of network configurations.
Users can also now build reports based on SKU/Category or Group/Item selection at the transaction or line item level; reports of all “tax rate” changes during any given reporting period for purposes of alerting user of changes, as well as a tool to validate system updates; and report of all “taxability” changes during any given reporting period for purposes of alerting users of changes, as well as a tool to validate system changes.

Two new Web service methods have been added to the enhanced CCH CorpSystem Sales Tax Office for faster and more efficient information access. “GetTaxRates” makes it easier for users to retrieve tax rates information from the Sales Tax Office Tax Rate Lookup and "GetTransactionTax” enables users to retrieve the tax calculation information applicable to a particular transaction.
