Greatsoft Software for Accountants

GreatSoft Tax suite where calculation and submission of Individual, Trust, Corporate and Provisional Tax returns is simplified.

We don’t need to tell you how GREAT our tax SOFTware is.

Konsise is a great software solution that revolutionises tax management. One standout feature is Konsise’s superior SARS Correspondence handling, a capability that sets it apart from its competitors. Through seamless integration with SARS eFiling, Konsise facilitates data exchange using push and pull mechanisms, ensuring efficient communication between tax professionals and tax authorities. Unlike traditional methods, where certain tax correspondence may be difficult to track down or remain inaccessible to some team members, Konsise’s integration resolves this by enabling the pull of correspondence for all tax types integrated with the platform. Konsise also eliminates the hassle of constantly logging in and out of SARS eFiling by letting users manage multiple eFiling profiles within the same instance. This revolutionary approach provides a comprehensive overview of all client data and compliance statuses in a single view, making tax management simpler and more productive than ever before.

A well respected tax professional always chooses great soft ware

Konsise is not limited to corporates or VAT; it is designed to efficiently handle various tax types for individuals and trusts with absolute ease. Our competitors may say otherwise, but we are confident in our capabilities.

ITR12, ITR14 and ITR12T calculators

Our software allows you to pull 3rd party data from SARS (e.g IRP5 certificates, Medical certificates, Investment income and Retirement Annuities) which we then use that to calculate a client’s tax return. Once you’re happy with the results, you can then submit back to SARS. Submissions and requests can be done in bulk, to ensure you can use your time to do what you do best. All the while you can keep your finger on the pulse, by pulling reports to see the status of returns as well as the calculations within. For a more hand’s on approach, all of this can be done within a workflow that’s as flexible as you are.

Assessments and other correspondence

After submitting your client’s return, you can keep track of any Assessments or correspondence that SARS issues by importing them in bulk from SARS. Once imported, you can also compare assessments with the tax return and see if there are any differences.

Provisional Tax Calculator

Our Provisional Calculator is another area where we interface directly with SARS. Calculate all your clients’ Provisional tax returns at the click of a button. The provisional calculations are based on the Assessments and payments that have been downloaded from SARS. And if you want to provide a more personal touch to a high value return, you can do that as well.Once your calculations are done and you’ve pulled the reports to confirm that you’re happy with the results, you can generate letters in bulk to distribute to your clients. Once everything is said and done, you can submit (in bulk or individually) through our interface.


For each of our functions, we also have the relevant accompanying reports. We want to make sure you’re never in doubt about the status of a submission or the result of a calculation. And our reports ensure that you’re informed every step of the way.

Statement of Account and tax entries

Once we have the assessments in place, GreatSoft can also help you to record, manage and track any tax payments made by your client. Including any interest or penalties that might have occurred. Any payments reflected on the SOA is pulled through to the system. Provisional payments are allocated automatically, while Income Tax Return payments are made available for allocation against the relevant return.


After a successful tax run, GreatSoft can assist with billing your clients. You can set up standard fees and fee notes, and generate invoices or fees in bulk. Get paid for the GREAT work you’ve done!


Certain processes you might not want to do yourself. Why waste time every day to request the latest assessments, when it can be automated? Our automation module helps automate the mundane day to day stuff, leaving you more time to ensure your clients are happy. This application runs in the background, retrieving and updating communication from SARS and submitting returns flagged for submission.
