Audit workflow tools used to be available for the BIG 4 players only, as they had the means to develop, maintain, and keep these software tools up to date to the latest legislation. Sole practitioners carried out their audits with ‘pen and paper’ (and a little Excel help as well).
Coming from a BIG 4 firm myself, I was very impressed with the CCH Audit Automation product, which took this Workflow Tool to a whole new level from what I was used to. The software captures the audit flow from ‘client acceptance’ to ‘final sign off’; provides interlinking with other Wolters Kluwer products; is always adjusted to the latest legislation and is accessible by multiple auditors working on the same client at the same time.
Several of my former colleagues agreed with me that Audit Automation has leveled the field and took away the competitive advantage BIG 4 firms had in this area. Some of them even started their own firms and use Audit Automation daily.
I hear stories almost every day where technology helps our tax professionals . . . from forms, to calcs, to workflow solutions. Tax compliance is complex, rapidly changing, and different in each jurisdiction. Our tax professionals rely on our compliance engines and software platforms to make sure they get forms and calculations right. In today’s fast-paced and unforgiving tax environment they just could not do it profitably any other way.
At the intersection of digitized content, sophisticated business rules, automated workflow, ubiquitous cloud access, and advanced mobility solutions, Wolters Kluwer can offer the opportunity for professionals to access a wealth of cumulative and always-current knowledge in an easy-to-use fashion.
In Brazil, the State Tax Authority launched a new program SPED to digitalize all tax filings with thousands of fields to be checked before submission. We are the only player in the market having launched a set of products able to automatize all the calculations and we help our customers to provide the right files in a very complex environment.
All of the professionals that we serve across our markets need to be right to serve their clients /patients, etc. It is expected and needed in our space. Professionals come to us because they know us to be thorough and accurate. As our world continues to become more complex, this value proposition to our customers is critical.
Fundamentally, the products and services we provide add value to our customers by simplifying their workflow and increasing their efficiency. Whether it is expert editorial content or cutting-edge software, we pride ourselves in providing solutions that tackle the pain points of our customers. Our high level of customer engagement together with our deep-seated curiosity constantly drives us to develop better products and services for the professionals we serve.
We recognize that our most valuable assets are the employees working for us across 40 countries. They create the products and services that deliver on our commitment to empower professionals with the confidence to make critical decisions every day.

Innovation is a key to our success, and one of the values that we encourage in our employees. We help them realize their potential and fulfill their ambitions while making a difference for our customers.
I have been working at Wolters Kluwer full-time
The benefits are great! I don't know many (if any) people who have better. Choice of health insurance plans, 30 days paid time off after 10 years service, flex time, generous life insurance plan. Wellness incentives. Casual dress allowed.
Low Pay for level of education required. Publishing is a dying field, particular print products. The company has shifted focus to online information delivery, but is up against stiff competition. Upper management lacks respect for highly educated workforce.
Advice to Management
Stop sending surveys that you don't intend to take seriously. Start showing respect for your employees. The LEAST you can do is say "hello" when you pass us in the hall. Treat us like professionals.
The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer.
Great recruiter - very personable, supportive, etc. However, lousy interview onsite. No direction, no structure, not too many questions - pretty much a waste of time. Position has now been open for over 10 months - so you can tell the leadership does not know what they want. 3rd largest market in the US and they cannot find someone?
