Topdocs partnered with BGL last week to give the software provider’s clients using its Corporate Affairs System (CAS) software access to automated documentation.
The integration was now available for CAS Desktop clients and will be made available in BGL’s web-based CAS 360 in 2016.
“The new partnership will provide BGL’s CAS clients with a simple, cost-effective solution for their company and trust documentation,” BGL managing director Ron Lesh said.
“Our scale has allowed us to negotiate an industry-leading service fee for our clients.”
BGL clients using CAS for company incorporations with ASIC can use the Topdocs integration to obtain company registration and trust establishment documentation for $66 per package.
All the data that populated the company documentation was taken directly from CAS, meaning accountants could receive their establishment documents in under 60 seconds through the new service, greatly reducing staff time and improving accuracy, Topdocs said.
“The new integration enables accountants to simplify and streamline the way they order their company and trust documentation through CAS, saving time and helping them to generate greater margins by providing complete documentation for companies and trusts,” Topdocs director Michael Spakman said.
“And with pricing so sharp, the accountant can either choose to pass on the cost savings to their clients or to generate more income for their practice.”
BGL has also worked with Topdocs to provide a multi-company constitution update service.
The CAS software was developed in 1987 as a comprehensive corporate compliance management solution.
Last month, BGL announced it had released the Act2 Actuarial Certificate Service through its web-based administration offering, Simple Fund 360. More actuarial certificate providers would be added, it said.
