Approaches Made by the Operation Departments
Achieve High Value-added Network Services by Leveraging the Strength of Central Processing
One of the strengths of TKC is the capability to process a massive amount of data using large-sized computers that it has continued to develop since its founding. We have worked to establish the functions needed to provide various network services as though we had anticipated "cloud computing" before its time.
Today, our two operation departments, the TKC Local Data Processing Centers (nine locations nationwide) tending to TKC member firms and the System Operation Department in charge of local governments undertake this role. For these departments to operate properly, it is crucial to secure highly advanced information securities and ensure continuous evolution of the system environment based on the latest ICT.
As for information securities, TKC acquired certification under international standard ISO27001 for the information security management system (ISMS) to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our information.
As we completed full transition to online, real-time processing on the Windows server in December 2014, we continue to improve the quality of our services and create new customer values.
TKC Local Data Processing Centers
The strength of the Tax Consulting Firms Business Division is the TKC Financial Accounting System which fully complies with laws and regulations. The TKC Local Data Processing Centers are dedicated to information processing services.
The Centers collaborate with the TKC Internet Service Center (TISC) to provide TKC members with the newest accounting information that reflects their account balance, which is constantly updated on a real-time basis. Even in the event of a large-scale disaster, the Centers are equipped with a mechanism to take over the functions of the affected Center, thus allowing to continue providing the services.
System Operation Department
The forte of the Local Governments Business Division is the TKC Government Cloud Service, which combines TKC's proprietary operation systems with the outsourcing service that supports massive batch processing. The System Operation Department is responsible for this outsourcing service.
We have developed a new mechanism that meets the demands of the "cloud era" to reduce time and improve the efficiency of tasks from processing of tax notifications and printing of forms to sealing, binding and delivery. With this, we help reduce the operational burden and costs of local governments during the initial taxation period and other peak seasons.

■ TKC Management Indicators (BAST)
The financial accounting data accumulated at the TKC Internet Service Center is utilized in the TKC Management Indicators (BAST) issued by the TKC National Federation every year.
BAST attains a remarkable reputation from financial institutions and other organizations as highly accurate, high speed management indicators on SMEs not matched by any other indicator.
In addition, TKC provides the TKC Medical Institutions Management Indicators (M-BAST), TKC Social Welfare Corporation Management Indicators (S-BAST), Wage Indicators for SMEs (Wage BAST) and the Monthly Remunerations for Officers/Retirement Allowance for Officers (Y-BAST).
Providing the Certificate of Bookkeeping Timeliness
The Certificate of Bookkeeping Timeliness (certificate of the timeliness in preparing accounting books [Article 432 of the Companies Act] and the certificate of electronic filing of the tax return) is provided to allow TKC Corporation as a third party to certify the timeliness in the preparation of the accounting books, financial statements and corporate income tax returns, as well as their accuracy in calculation.
One of the features of the TKC Financial Accounting System is that it requires TKC member firms to conduct "field auditing" and complete the "monthly closing" to verify the legality, accuracy and timeliness of the accounting materials and records of each client, and that it disallows any retroactive processing (correction, addition, or deletion) of past accounting data.
The financial accounting data that undergoes the monthly field auditing by TKC member firms is processed and stored at TISC, based on which the client's financial statements are prepared upon settlement and the corporate income tax return eventually filed electronically. This data is also used as the basis in developing the client's management improvement plans. The Certificate of Bookkeeping Timeliness is issued by leveraging the strength of the financial accounting processing method achieved through central processing.
