New York, September 8, 2014 — G2 FinTech, provider of tax analysis and compliance software for the investment management community, today announced that TaxGopher® now supports Phase 3 Cost Basis Reporting (CBR) for Advent Software’s Geneva® clients. TaxGopher levers the fixed income engine within Geneva, Advent’s world class portfolio management system, to drive tax analysis computations and reporting for Phase 3 covered securities – fixed income and derivatives. Geneva and TaxGopher, proven solutions for the complex tax accounting associated with derivatives and other alternative instruments, deliver a powerful CBR solution that is designed to scale. A large number of Prime Brokers are already benefitting from this combined solution and using it to address CBR, Phases 1 and 2.
George Michaels, CEO and Founder of G2 FinTech, commented, “G2 has always been in the forefront of addressing the complicated accounting issues our clients face related to fixed income and derivatives. TaxGopher, our best-of-breed software for tax analysis of securities transactions, combined with Advent Geneva’s rich pre-tax handling of fixed income and derivatives, enable the G2-Advent alliance to provide a strong Phase 3 solution for Geneva clients.”
As an Advent Alliance Partner, G2 is a Sponsor and Exhibitor at AdventConnect 2014, Advent Software’s annual U.S. client conference and will be located at Booth #25.
Additionally, G2 FinTech has published the white paper, “Cost Basis Reporting, Phase 3: The Basics,” which outlines how to comply with Phase 3 requirements when generating 1099-B statements that include securities futures contracts, different options and covered debt. The paper also reviews amortization rules, which are an integral part of calculating cost basis for debt instruments and can make compliance with Phase 3 highly challenging for brokers.
