5. In one sentence, what does your fintech do?:

CCH Integrator streamlines the complexity of tax compliance and reporting across multiple entities and jurisdictions, increasing control, reducing risk and freeing your finance function to focus on greater things.

6. How / why did you start your fintech company?:

A forward-looking group of tax professionals wanted to use cloud technology to break down obstacles between parties in the tax compliance process, lowering the risk for both. This software enabled a new level of collaboration and simplified the company income tax and reporting process. Over time they expanded the software to meet clients’ evolving needs.

At the same time, Wolters Kluwer wanted to expand its extensive tax expertise into software. We already had a business, CCH, that provided tax guidance around the world but no software to simplify compliance. CCH and Integrator seemed a perfect fit.

So, in 2010, Wolters Kluwer purchased the Integrator software. We made the critical decision to keep it as one integrated business, which evolved across different tax types, countries and industries, into a single integrated platform to be used globally.

7. What is the best thing your company has achieved or learnt along the way (this can include awards, capital raising etc)?:

CCH Integrator has been adopted by more than 350 corporations globally with 15,000+ users in over 80 countries. This includes Australia’s largest financial institutions and 40% of the ASX 100.

8. What’s some advice you’d give to an aspiring start-up?:

Commit to helping your customers improve the way they do business – enable them to confidently solve complex problems.

9. What’s next for your company? And are you looking to expand overseas or stay focused on Australia?:

We have a very strong track record of adapting to change and it’s a big reason why CCH Integrator is continuing to grow and be used by companies and professional firms around the world.

Born and bred in Melbourne, we continue to invest in CCH Integrator for our Australian customers, focusing on harnessing technology to automate processes and ensure the seamless flow of data through their ecosystems to minimise low value activities and the double handling of information.

We are also ambitious to grow our business overseas and position CCH Integrator as the world’s leading tax software for larger businesses. We’re creating an open global tax platform that delivers locally – adapting to local tax jurisdictions and the needs of customers across diverse markets.
