Press Release Oct 30, 2006

Dallas, Texas - Ryan & Company, America’s largest independent state & local tax consulting firm, today announced that it has acquired all rights to TaxDecisionERP™, an advanced U.S. multistate use tax decision automation tool for SAP users. TaxDecisionERP™ was jointly developed by Ryan & Company and Technology Solutions Company in 2004 and provides the framework for Ryan & Company's proprietary tax decision automation services.

“Our Firm is already a leader in providing effective, high-quality tax technology solutions,” said G. Brint Ryan, Managing Principal of Ryan & Company. “We will continue to invest in TaxDecisionERP™ to advance and refine the solution and make its substantial benefits available to more clients.”

TaxDecisionERP™ is a patent pending, integrated software solution that enables effective automation of use tax calculations. Its benefits include:

  • Reducing tax overpayments and penalties and interest from underpayment
  • Improving cash flow by paying tax on actual use rather than at invoice payment
  • Eliminating manual labor hours spent calculating, correcting, and reconciling use tax
  • Enhancing audit and trace ability tools for Sarbanes-Oxley documentation, monitoring, and controls
  • Creating purchase orders with correct product codes to accurately determine use tax
  • Generating real-time calculations as goods are issued and services are delivered

Tax Recovery Combined with On-Going Automation Yields ROI

“Leveraging our use tax knowledge, we first help our clients recover previous overpayments based on inadequate use tax management,” said Ryan. “This can often amount to millions of dollars that go directly to a company’s bottom line.”

“Utilizing TaxDecisionERP™ allows us to continue to maintain the best practices and processes we have put in place to help the client achieve effective use tax management going forward,” Ryan added.
