PwC Romania launches ExperTax, its first Mobile Tax Application
PwC Romania launches its first Mobile Application called ExperTax which provides basic tax assistance to individuals working as freelancers or authorised consultants in Romania.
The main feature of this App is a Tax calculator, an algorithm which calculates the taxes due in any individual case of a specific user. This is the most complex part of the app and includes drop down fields with multiple choices, where the user will input his/her specific conditions and the algorithm will provide a final result. This section allows the user to calculate back and forth their income from gross to net or from net to gross.
“As the use of smartphones becomes more widespread, this impacts every aspect of the economy, including tax consultancy. Our clients are sophisticated business persons that require more and more innovative products to keep informed and to compute their tax dues as fast as possible in the most comfortable and appealing manner as possible. ExperTax is the perfect tool for such tasks and I am sure that it will become a favourite application of individuals in liberal professions in Romania. The launch of this mobile tax application shows how PwC Romania understands to be at the forefront of innovation on the tax consultancy market, just as the launch of TaxOnline.ro was the first online portal that offered customized tax advice”, stated Peter de Ruiter, Tax and Legal Services Leader, PwC Romania.
