Important Notes

If you are a Software as a Service customer (Corptax hosts your data), you must comply with requirements for workstation
hardware and software.

These specifications serve as a guideline. Your needs may vary depending on the number of simultaneous users, the
number of tax years, the size and variety of general ledger charts, network capacity, and the number of consolidations and
combinations.

Software requirements may change during a product year based on the specifications of third-party vendors. You should
update to the latest service packs and apply other software updates as they are released. The Corptax policy is to support
new service packs within three months of their official release.


We encourage you to evaluate your computer system before you install Corptax products. Ensure that your system meets
