CHICAGO – February 3, 2017 –Forte International Tax, LLC (“Forte”) is mentioned in Accounting Today’s 2017 Top Products List for its VantagePoint Global Tax Software Platform.

VantagePoint, Forte’s web-based ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) platform, enables organizations to precisely quantify the global tax cost of any number of alternative tax structures and positions.  “VantagePoint’s computations are global in scope and while the computations are detailed enough to support compliance, the user interface is geared for the international tax planner.  This makes it very easy for clients to run multiple planning and forecasting scenarios throughout the year to accurately quantify the impact of the most complex international transactions on their global effective tax rate,” said Managing Director Lester Fuwa.

Accounting Today says, “Forte International Tax has earned an Honorable Mention for its Vantage Point 4.3 by adding a detailed international modeling tool covering the repatriation proposals of the Trump administration and others so that users can begin creating planning scenarios to make the most (or minimize the worst) of whatever gets enacted.”
