CAS 360 Software Update Release July 2020

Hi All,

For the July CAS 360 update, we have focused heavily again on Trust management. Our aim has always been to have the best trust management feature set in Australia and New Zealand. Building on our release of Trust relationships in June, our new feature Trust Events takes this to the next level.

Trust Events is a new tab that has been added to all the trusts in CAS 360. Inside this tab, you now have a huge amount of new functionality. You can now store and record all asset, liability, gifting, income, and expense transactions for a trust.

This will give you a snapshot of all this information for each trust. Also, as years go by you will be able to add transactions for capital improvements, changes in value and forgiving of loans.

Best of all when any of these transactions takes place, CAS 360 will prepare the required supporting documents, which can then be reviewed by your Partner or Manager and delivered by email to your client for electronic signing.

In this release, we have also added a dedicated Documents tab to each trust allowing users to see all stored documents for each trust and also upload any other documents associated with the trust.

Also, new options have been added when preparing company registers. As CAS 360 supports up to 10 decimal places for unit registers and share registers, we have added an option to allow you to select how many appear, so for those difficult companies or unit trusts that go to 7 or 8 decimal places CAS 360 has you covered.

Users are now also able to select the name order to the Company Members Register & Unitholders Register, users can select to have this register ordered in First Name, Surname or Surname, First Name.

We have also improved the way joint members are ordered on Company Member and Trust Unitholder registers, the joint member will now be ordered by the First Name or Surname of the first representative.

This update also includes improvements to the officer’s screen and updated NZ form 9 template and API improvements.

To gain the most from our new features, attend our webinar on Wednesday, 19 August 2020 at 11:30 AEST. Register Now >>>
