Why accounting firms choose Karbon over TaxDome

Purposefully built platform

Like TaxDome, Karbon is built for tax and accounting firms. But rather than duct-taping underdeveloped functionalities into an overwhelming system, Karbon’s cloud-native practice management solution is woven with features that flow together smoothly and thoughtfully.

When you use Karbon to initiate, plan, and deliver work, your team and clients are equally delighted. You won’t be wasting time doing work for work’s sake—you’ll get work done better, faster, and smarter.

Collaboration and visibility at its core

Communication is at the heart of every successful accounting firm. Karbon’s fully embedded email, @mention and comments, and shared client communication timeline features allow teams to seamlessly collaborate with each other and clients in context.

You won’t need to repeatedly chase down the same information or conversations. Knowledge silos and bottlenecks are removed. Everything you need to know is available at your fingertips.

Exceeds expectations

Karbon has solved the 'silo' problem in my business. Complete visibility of communications between team members and customers is now a reality. The Karbon development team and support team are amazing and really care about me and my business.

Keeping the dispersed team connected

Syncing with my Outlook email and calendar helps me prioritize my day. The project management side gives me visibility into my team's work. Karbon's functionality allows our bookkeeping and accounting teams to keep projects on track and ensure future projects don't get missed. I appreciate the insights into what is being worked on, the due dates and the workflow.

Finally in control of my practice

There are many features I love, but overall, I love being able to see at a glance exactly where we are with client deadlines and what we need to prioritize. Before this, the practice management system I was using required me to download data into Excel, mess about for hours and the next day, it had all changed. I love being able to allocate work directly from my inbox, moving things to My Week to do later — it's great!

Custom Pricing

Karbon has three pricing plans: Team, Business, and Enterprise. Firms under 50 users can choose either a Team or Business plan and the total cost is simply the number of users multiplied by the monthly cost of an annual contract. For example, for a 5-user firm on an annual Business plan, Karbon would cost $395 USD per month in total.

TaxDome’s Lite plan is only available to solo practitioners and it can only be purchased as an annual contract. The cost of a TaxDome Lite annual plan is $300 USD.

The TaxDome Pro plan is intended for firms with more than one employee. It costs $50 USD/month, however, the primary user and owner of the account must sign up for an annual subscription, and then add users at either an annual or monthly subscription plan. For a 5-user firm on an annual TaxDome Pro plan, the total cost would be $250 USD per month.

Karbon is a premium accounting practice management software and our pricing reflects that.

Unlike TaxDome, which tries to use a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, Karbon delivers a truly collaborative platform for bookkeepers, CPAs, tax professionals, and advisors in a way that actually makes work more productive. And, Karbon has a clean and streamlined user interface that doesn’t overwhelm.

Karbon’s most recent customer survey found the average user saves 16.5 hours per week compared to their previous solution. This means that most firms experience greater profit and growth after implementing Karbon.

Karbon is also evolving rapidly. New features are released every few weeks and the product roadmap is shaped by customer feedback.

Karbon integrates with Gmail, Microsoft Outlook 365, Microsoft Exchange, DropBox, OneDrive, and an ever-growing suite of popular accounting apps including QuickBooks Online, Ignition, GoProposal, and more. You can also connect Karbon to over 5,000 apps through Zapier. To learn more about Karbon’s integration capabilities, visit the integrations library here.
