Partnership tax compliance, powered by iPACS

For critical insights and functionality

Manage complex partnership tax compliance and respond to your investors’ advanced reporting requirements with iPACS, pioneered by Deloitte Tax.

Deliver strategic value to your investors

Tax departments must manage a range of issues that have direct consequences for pass-through taxation compliance and reporting.

For tax departments that still rely on largely manual, spreadsheet-based processes, responding to new requirements and developments could be crippling. What’s more, deploying new tax technologies could call for significant time and resources in order to integrate those technologies with an organization’s existing IT systems.

Tax directors and CFOs responsible for meeting compliance rules need quick, effective tools that enable them to:

  • Advise investors on partnership transactions
  • Add strategic value to their own organizations
  • Elevate the tax function to address ever-increasing expectations

The iPACS platform and process

Deloitte’s partnership tax compliance process, enabled by our iPACS technology, provides the methodology, tools, and templates to streamline reporting processes. Reducing the time needed to deliver critical tax insights also facilitates operational decision making.

The iPACS platform and process was designed to address the hardest part of the partnership tax compliance and reporting process:

  • Managing complicated tax allocations to partners
  • Tiering results through complex organizational structures

Today, those capabilities remain the backbone of iPACS’s demonstrated track record of delivering millions of K-1s. During that time, our clients have also utilized this functionality for both year-end tax reporting and the quarterly estimated tax process.

iPACS addresses partnership organizational structures and fact patterns to manage large amounts of complex tax data in an efficient manner. This platform also helps tax departments to strategically focus on regulatory requirements in the US and around the globe.

Responding to compliance requirements

Compliance requirements for investment management firms and other financial institutions are coming from many directions, including:

  • The US’s Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)
  • The UK’s Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories (CDOT) regime
  • The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Common Reporting Standard

Once a client is on-boarded, much of the data required to report on foreign account holders will populate and exist in the iPACS database. So it’s a natural extension of iPACS’s scalable capabilities to address those tax reporting requirements.
