In-house vs. Outsourcing: Regaining Confidence and Control

Challenge

Outsourcing their federal return process proved challenging for Dish Network. Once they received their data:

  • Consolidating two returns took more than a month with overrides and customization
  • Finalizing books required four people
  • Managing inconsistency between firm’s data and Dish’s data was time-consuming and difficult
  • Analyzing massive workpapers and organizing data to support audits drained resources

Dish determined they needed to bring their tax work in-house to regain control over accounts and adjustments, improve workpapers, precisely structure their data, and have supporting documentation at the ready.

Solution

Dish implemented CSC Corptax® Compliance themselves, finding it easy and non-intrusive. The team adapted quickly based on the familiar and friendly interface.

Results

Now, with their tax data structured and secured in a single system, Dish accelerates federal consolidation.

  • Completes books in one day with one person vs. four people
  • Consolidates two returns in three days vs. one month
  • Saves ~$350,000 annually above software cost
  • Directly accesses underlying data to support audit cycles
  • Maintains data security
