GruntWorx is proud to have successfully completed the SSAE 16
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GruntWorx, the tax automation solution for tax professionals, is proud to have successfully completed the AICPA’s Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements Number 18 (SSAE 18) Type 2 SOC 1 examination, which—as part of an effort to provide clarity on attestation standards—supersedes SSAE 16 and rolls several SSAE standards into one. More comprehensive than SSAE 16, this new standard requires ongoing auditor oversight of subservice providers’ controls. The examination was performed by an independent CPA firm, Schellman & Company, LLC.
SSAE 18 requires that participating organizations provide auditors with an internal risk assessment that is continually reviewed by both the organization and auditors, identifying systems involved in providing a specific subservice and using regular examinations to guarantee the quality of those practices. In short, GruntWorx has submitted to this examination to assure customers that we maintain quality controls to thoroughly validate our ability to securely handle client data.
Gruntworx provides a comprehensive and integrated family of web-based products that automate client tax document retrieval, organization, data entry, and review. The GruntWorx family of products has been in use for multiple tax seasons by thousands of accounting professionals—from sole practitioners to those in large regional firms.
