This project is for both the coding and design required.
The purpose of this site is to provide a portal for clients to have their AUSTRALIAN tax return completed.
On the front of the site, it will advertise the services provided and provide quick direct links to get in contact with someone. The main structure of this busines is that the user completes most of the work an the site will support them in doing so.
So they will complete a series of online forms which is continually saved against their account - so that at any time they can come back and complete their lodgement - if they require additional information. Once completed - they will be guided to download and have emailed to them - a pdf file containing all of the information that they completed.
They will be asked to print and submit the file online (either by scanning and uploading or by offline methods). They may also be required to provide additional documentation.
The portal has 2 sides; An Admin side and a Client side. It acts as the primary method of contact and source of information between both parties.
On the client side:
The user would first create an account as part of their form completion. For example the first page will ask them for their contact details and from that information it will create an account for them and require them to verify their email address in order to proceed.
They will then proceed to complete an online interview (3-4 pages of questions).
**Please see the attachments for full list of features.. **
We suggest you check out sites like etax .com .au. As a similiar idea to what we are wanting.
However some features worth mentioning:
+ Some form of built in invoicing or integrations with a shopping cart. We have some copies of cs-cart available or if you prefer an open source code - that is fine. Shopping cart is just to allow users the option to prepay for their service.
+ Multiple languages (user can elect to change the language of the site).
+ Project consists of 3 domains. 1 is the admin's domain (where all the databases will be stored). And the other 2 domains are the actual public ones (where the customer will access their personal portal).
+ News Feed - almost identical to that used on scriptlance (shows system changes) + users updates.
Payment will be by escrow released upon completion.
We would ideally be wanting someone for a longer term relationship for future projects related to this site, as ongoing work may be required.
Preference will be given to those who have worked for us before.
