Recordkeeping & Reporting
Historical data reports and a good recordkeeping system are essential to the success of your business. Creating, maintaining, easily accessing secure client data and utilizing historical account data, are business practices that should increase the success of your business. All of these are critical components for ensuring a thriving business.
Good recordkeeping can help save you time and money, make preparation of tax documents easier, create efficiencies in your day-to-day operations, and help you maintain positive relationships with the families you serve.
Along with recordkeeping, reports can help you evaluate your business performance, analyze your business profitability, help you make decisions regarding investments, and provide guidance for the future of your business.
Recordkeeping and Reporting Services are two value added solutions offered by ClearPoint. We offer a variety of reports designed with your business needs in mind.

We possess a unique position where we have the ability to serve as both trustee and recordkeeper, allowing us to look at the preneed business holistically, which puts us at the forefront of being able to propose changes to legislation and issues related to the deathcare industry. To do this we serve as a partner to our clients to draft legislation, explain issues to regulators and legislators, and testify in favor of beneficial changes to the law. As a client of ClearPoint, you will be in a position to benefit from our expertise, and dedication to the advancement and success of the deathcare industry. We provide guidance to help ensure your business runs smoothly, effectively, and in compliance.
Tax preparation is often a complicated and time consuming process. To help you save time and money, we provide tax preparation services by Grantor Letter or Qualified Funeral Trust (QFT). This value added service is available to all to assist with the paperwork required for trust compliance.
QFT – The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 from the Internal Revenue Code allows for the trust to pay the tax on the income earned during the year. This eliminates the need for a grantor letter to be sent to the family. It is selected at the time a new funeral planning agreement is completed or at a later time by completing the Qualified Funeral Trust form. Once this option is selected, it cannot be changed.
Grantor Letters – similar to a 1099. This letter is sent to the tax recipient showing the income that is reportable to the IRS.
