More oil and gas companies are now affected by the expansion of the Federal Government’s PRRT legislation. Together, CCH Integrator software and Jet Financial’s PRRT software will ease compliance burdens.
Sydney, Australia (11 April, 2013) – CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business and global leader in integrated risk, compliance and reporting solutions for professionals is partnering with industry consulting and technology firm Jet Financial as the preferred Petroleum Resource Rent Tax (PRRT) software integration partner for its market-leading CCH Integrator software.
The integration with Jet Financial’s best-of-breed PRRT solution positions CCH as the only provider in the market that can offer a comprehensive tax reporting and “whole of Resource Rent Tax” solution.
CCH Integrator, already being used by hundreds of corporations nationally and internationally, enables tax, finance and accounting professionals to meet stringent reporting requirements. Managing Director of CCH Corporate Reporting Solutions Peter Boyle said the partnership results in the integration of two best-practice solutions.
“CCH’s easy-to-use, highly scalable corporate reporting platform, CCH Integrator and Jet Financial’s tax solution and robust PRRT calculation software take the complexity out of compliance and largely automate it. Jet Financial enables clients to accurately calculate, track and report their PRRT information through the years with minimised operational risk and the security of an enterprise-grade solution.
“This is why CCH and Jet Financial are partnering: We are meeting with many major oil and gas companies who have expressed a keen interest in both Jet Financial’s PRRT software products and the ability to integrate with their existing tax technology, CCH Integrator. CCH Integrator is an established corporate reporting tool that has been used for taxation and compliance reporting for over 10 years and helps manage risk by providing auditability, traceability, change control, and approvals and a single-source of truth.
“It is challenging to tailor a corporate reporting solution to every single industry equally well, however CCH is clearly proving the solution provider of choice ahead of other options,” Boyle explained.
CCH Integrator is built on a single and established technology platform. It requires only minimal training and takes the user a matter of minutes to be up and running. It is not a spreadsheet-based solution like many other solutions which is why our clients are making the successful switch to CCH’s market-leading CCH Integrator software.”
Jet Financial Director, Simon Raper said notwithstanding CCH’s recent positive press, his organisation interviewed two key players and decided that the best-fitting technological solution was CCH Integrator.
“We needed a big name behind Jet Financial’s PRRT software. The combination of our PRRT software and CCH’s Integrator platform represents a comprehensive tax reporting and Petroleum Resource Rent Tax solution,” he explained.
“Some of the leading energy and resource companies are using CCH Integrator already and are familiar with Jet Financial’s PRRT software. Adding value to clients by enabling them to further leverage their existing tax platform whilst providing specialist, industry-leading PRRT software was the driver for Jet Financial and CCH to join forces,” Raper added.
Together, CCH and Jet Financial will help clients:
- lower overall cost of meeting the compliance requirements;
- reduce the risk of not complying; and
- improve the ongoing quality of data.

It has applied to the Bass Strait Project since 1990 and, from 1 July 2012, applied to onshore petroleum projects and the North West Shelf project but not the Joint Petroleum Development Area in the Timor Sea.
