    24-48 hours for a new query For existing clients 12-24 hours
  • How do you ensure that my files and data are completely secure?
    Pransform comprehensively protects privacy and confidentiality of client data. 1) DATA SECURITY Access to the company’s computer network is protected by Firewalls of international standard. Workstation access is specific to each staff member, controlled through passwords and governed through centralized policies controlled through the server. No workstation has public email access or floppy /CD /DVD drives / USB drives. FTP access is available to select few with automated-logs of activities done (used for file 
transfers between client and our servers). Public chat messengers are not allowed on any computers and none of the user 
machines can download and install any software. Access to national or international dialing is controlled through unique ids given to each 
staff member and each call can be logged. Access to printer, photocopier and fax is also controlled through unique ids and the 
usage is monitored. Access to various websites is permitted only on need basis and log is maintained and 
reviewed. By default all websites are blocked and users have to make a specific request, authorized by the managers, to the IT administrator to permit access to any specific website. The management periodically reviews the list of authorized websites. Screen shots of each computer are logged at periodic intervals and reviewed. Top management has utilities by which it can view the monitor of any computer from their own desktop. This fact has been explained clearly to all employees that it is the right of the company to do so and the company will do it without any prior notice to any employee. The reasoning has also been explained that the safety, security and 
confidentiality of client data are of paramount importance. As a standard method, our staff works in your servers through a remote desktop 
connectivity and hence all the data is stored only in your systems. If you need us to maintain transaction data, it is safe and secure with the abovementioned arrangements. 2) PHYSICAL SECURITY Pransform’s processing office premises are in a commercial complex having general access security at the entrance. The office premises are highly secure with separate electronically controlled access to main office and additional access control for operations areas. Intrusion detectors during off hours. Direct, automated link to 24 X 7 security service provider – who monitors the office round 
the clock. Specified management members get calls if office is opened or not closed at 
pre-defined office hours. Closed circuit TV cameras throughout the premises with monitoring by the management. Invisible alarm set offs for emergencies. Locker room for staff to keep their personal belongings. Personal mobile phones are not 
allowed to be carried into operations area. 3) LEGAL SECURITY We sign off “non-disclosure and confidentiality agreement” with each client. On top of it, we have “Computer use policy” and “Employee confidentiality agreement” signed off with each employee that can enable us to take legal actions in case of a breach.
  • Do I have to outsource my entire project, or am I allowed picking certain tasks that I want to outsource?
    Yes, each of our plans is built on the premise that you pay only for the actual work done. We assure you productivity so you can be confident of the per hour output. Hiring, training, review, management - all on us!
  • What are your working hours?
    We work on GMT +7 time. However, you can drop us an email at and our team will get back to you within 12 hours. Also, if it’s urgent you can reach us 24*7 at +1(312)265-5875.
  • Do you provide a free trial? Or can you share a sample of your work?
    Yes, we do provide a free trial or sample work.
  • Do you sign 1099?
    No, we don’t sign unless a client asks us to do so.
  • Do you provide Payroll services ? How does it work?
    Yes, we do provide payroll services. Please read the details here
  • What software do you use for Tax?
    We use client’s software and do work on it. If you want us to advise you on it, we can do so as well.
  • How can I sign up for a free trial with you?
    Just reach out to our team on and we will assign a project manager that will help you proceed with trial based on what services you opt for working with Pransform.
  • Can you provide an example/more details on how you work with the software platform each CPA might have:
    We access the client's system via a remote desktop (Software like Anydesk, TeamViewer, etc. for offline work). For Lacerte, as an example, they can assign access to their project manager's email. Typically what we suggest is, the client should assign a dedicated PC/Desktop to us and keep it running with adding relevant folders/tasks for us and inform us while they go home. So, by the time they come back in the morning, work is done and ready for review with a report. This helps in increasing productivity due to time differences. Read more
  • Will you need to obtain your client’s consent prior to outsourcing their tax preparation to us?
    AICPA, Ethics Ruling No. 1 Under Rule 301 holds that using an outside service bureau for processing client tax returns would not constitute the release of confidential client information and therefore would not require specific client consent in accordance with the provisions of Rule 301, Confidential Client Information. Additionally, specific client consent would not be required provided the member enters into a contractual agreement with the service provider to maintain the confidentiality of the client’s information and the member is reasonably assured that the service provider has appropriate procedures in place to prevent the unauthorized release of confidential client information. For 1040 returns, however, IRS section 7216 specifies that the taxpayer must agree and sign a form consenting to the disclosure. See Revenue Procedure 2013-14, section 5.04(e) for specific language that must be included in the consent form. Contact Us to receive the standard template of the consent form. Your clients trust you to prepare their tax returns. They appreciate the stress and stretch that you go through during the tax season. And generally they would not mind you taking some help to have sanity in your life during the demanding tax season. You assure them that you will do the final review before filing their return and you are accountable to them, as before. Pransform has processed tax returns for multiple tax preparation firms so it is not a new thing. Here is what one of our clients very aptly summarized the experience of working with Pransform during the 2014 season.
