What is FurastaHUB?
Updated: Jun 15, 2020
Furasta means easy and that is our aim, to make complex tax claims easier for businesses and their advisors.
FurastaHUB is an on-line platform for more straightforward tax relief claims. It puts Furasta’s tax consultancy expertise at your fingertips, places you in control of the capital allowances claims process and provides the most cost-effective way to unlock the tax relief you’re due. It employs an easy-to-use interface and is fully supported by Furasta’s team.
Claiming legitimate tax relief should not be burdensome and our role as advisors is to help business navigate the complexity in the most efficient way that delivers value and avoids unnecessary risk.
The application contains detailed online guidance for a range of projects and property types with a human touch when needed. Real time input with secure data storage, audit trail and history – no more struggling to find details of your claims whenever you sell a property or deal with a compliance check from HM Revenue & Customs.
Central to the platform is a role-based access system that allows accountants, clients, tax consultants, and their suppliers to work together to produce a capital allowances claim in a secure and controlled environment.
The application code is written in Ruby on Rails. Ruby on Rails is a web application framework that has been used to develop many familiar platforms such as Airbnb, Groupon and Slideshare as well web infrastructure applications including Github, Heroku and Zendesk. The application is hosted on a London-based Linode VPS running Linux, Nginx and MySql. Assets are stored on Amazon S3.
A number of businesses (including accountants and in-house tax teams) have already signed up for BETA testing and if you would like to see how FurastaHUB could benefit your business please do not hesitate to get in touch.
