J2EE Technology Stack

Taxilla is built on n-tier logical architecture model which can be grouped into five physical tiers. Each tier in the logical and physical tiers performs a specific function and acts as a supplier to the tiers immediately surrounding it.

Client Tier
Taxilla uses HTML with JQuery Controls, Ajax and HTML5 (for mapper component) to reduce network traffic and better performance. Taxilla also can support custom widgets, which can act as clients and communicate with Taxilla to achieve the desired functionality.
Ajax and RESTful Web services naturally fit with each other. They both leverage widely available Web technologies and standards such as HTML, JavaScript, browser objects, XML/JSON, and HTTP. RESTful Web services provide Ajax with a very simple API to deal with the interactions with resources on the server.

Service Tier
Service tier is responsible for creating domain specific objects. The goal of the service tier is to implement the service specific rules by utilizing the underlying domain objects. After receiving a request from the client tier, the Service Tier requests the service from the business logic layer. The Service Tier identifies all the conceptual entities that the system exposes as resources and assigns a unique URI to each of them. Service Tier is implemented via Spring framework.

Domain Tier
Business rules are centralized into the business logic layer that serves as an intermediary for data exchange between the presentation layer and the data access layer. Data is provided to the Service Tier in the form of domain objects or value objects. Decoupling the Service Tier from the domain tier helps facilitate code reuse, and leads to a flexible and extensible architecture.

Data Access Tier
Data access tier provides a consistent programming interface for the service developer, which abstracts platform business logic from the underlying data source. The domain tier is the only direct consumer of data access tier. Data access tier utilizes the following:

  • Hibernate for standard data storage which in turn can be configured to support any standard RDBMS
  • File Management layer which can be configured to use local file system or no-sql storage solution (At present MongoDB is used to store files to enhance clustering support)

Integration Tier
Integration Tier is the backbone of Taxilla and provides the ability of Taxilla to integrate with upstream and downstream applications for data transfer. Taxilla provides both real-time and batch mode of integration using the following integration methods – Web services, DB and FTP. All such integrations can be secured via various security mechanisms – Web Services via HTTPS protocol; DB via native database protocols; FTP via FTPS protocol. Exchange of confidential data can be handled via encryption methods via PGP or PKI.

Cloud Based ETL Engine

Taxilla provisions a cloud based ETL (Exraction, Transformation and Load) Architecture for extracting the raw data from customer, transforming the data to predefined canonical forms, using data qualification, validation, mapping, data correction and using delta data capture. Once the data is well qualified, it is uploaded for further processing and statutory reporting and filing.

Multiple Tenancy Models

Taxilla is built to support a multiple tenancy model, wherein a single instance of the software runs on a server, serving multiple client organizations / tenants. So, Taxilla can not only serve multiple users within an organization, but can work for multiple organizations.

Web 2.0 UI with HTML 5 / JQuery

Taxilla is built using JQuery /HTML framework and uses Web 2.0 UI. HTML 5 enables better error handling, reduction in usage of external plugins, more markups to replace scripting. Taxilla uses HTML with JQuery Controls, Ajax and HTML5 (for mapper component) to reduce network traffic and submissions and provide fast response to the end user and reduce load on the server.

Electronic Form Entry

In Taxilla, the electronic form entry feature ensures that all field edits, validations, business rules are enforced at the time of entry itself, thereby eliminating errors. The user can now enter data online without worrying about filing with excel sheets because the electronic form entry feature

  • Generates an automatic electronic form as per the tax reports selected
  • Forms are formatted with description on how the fields are to be used
  • Supports numeric data types, date fields and dropdowns
  • Executes automated calculation of fields while conditionally mandatory and default values simplify data entry experience
  • Simplifies data entry experience

Dynamic Delta Capture

The dynamic delta capture feature is unique to Taxilla as it is not present in any of the competitors’ software. It is a unique functionality which captures missing data while recording business transactions thereby reducing the chances of making an error. In short, the Delta Capture ensures that all required taxation information is captured and validated prior to processing.
Taxilla also ensures validation of all input data against the field edits and business rules. We double check with the approved validation utility, thereby further reducing the risk of rejection.

  • Typically used when the ERP system is unable to capture the required taxation information,
  • Provision to correct the data online and enter additional information required for taxation.
  • A complete audit trail ensures that updates are properly tracked
  • Supports bi-directional feed back to the client’s ERP.

Comprehensive Audit Trial

In Taxilla, the user is able to view a comprehensive audit trail, a feature which ensures that all the changes made to the original file before filing can be reviewed by the user. The feature promotes:

  • Complete versioning of all the report metadata including templates, elements, validations, tax rules, report formats
  • Support for multiple active versions wherever applicable
  • Automatic version detection based on configuration
  • Ability to generate historical reports as per the format and rules existing during that period

Online Mapping

The online mapping feature allows a user to remap his input filing data online in such a way that it can be correctly processed for successful filing of returns.

  • Using our expression builder, user can modify his filing data
  • Ensure that your data is error-free before filing

Integrated user access

Integrated user access in Taxilla allows for fine Grained Access Control with

  • Role based permissions for better security
  • All permissions to be approved by Organization’s Power User
  • Centralized control of permissions incase of multi-location setup

For enhanced security, permission can be restricted at the lowest level – report level, tax type level and location level or organization level.

Online Business Validation

Taxilla validates that the updated data, after delta capture, adheres to target business rules and validations. This feature allows the user to

  • Correct data online
  • Enter additional information required
  • Ensure that the data adheres to business rules & validations

Audit Friendly Versioning

Taxilla has built-in version management with automatic detection to reduce human errors and ensure higher accuracy of report generation.

Work Queues

  • Operations are workflow enabled requiring interaction between multiple users
