Advantages and Benefits

Sales tax is hard. There’s always the possibility of changing legislative regulations, new tax rules, or shifts in product taxability. And there’s a big financial risk for your business if you’re getting it wrong.

Let AvaTax calculate sales tax for every one of your business transactions based on jurisdiction laws and rules, without bogging down your IT or finance teams.

Tax Calculation

AvaTax Sales & Use Tax

Avalara AvaTax provides cloud-based sales and use tax calculation with comprehensive, up-to-date tax rates pushed to your shopping cart or invoicing system, automatically.

Even when manual tax processes are manageable, keeping up with the changes can be impossible — there’s always the possibility of legislative regulations, new tax rules, and shifts in product taxability.

Rather than spending time ensuring your rates, product taxability, and collection requirements haven’t changed, let our cloud-based SaaS system evaluate each transaction based on the latest laws and rules, without additional effort from your IT or finance teams.

Tax Returns

Avalara Returns

Avalara Returns uses your sales data to prepare and file your sales and use tax returns, and remit payments, across multiple jurisdictions every filing cycle.

Determines your applicable taxes, generates schedules and returns, and handles filing and payments for all major excise reporting jurisdictions in the U.S. and Canada. Prepares and files your sales and use tax returns with a higher degree of accuracy than doing it yourself – and in a fraction of the time.

Tax Document Management

Avalara CertCapture

Avalara CertCapture is a scalable solution that securely collects, stores, and manages tax documents like exemption certificates, W-8s, and W-9s, in the cloud — for quick access to all your documentation whenever you need it.

CertCapture syncs with your transaction tax software to automatically apply tax exemptions to purchases, including drop-shipments and purchase orders.

It also serves as an audit management platform by storing all your exemption certificates in one place. Bulk export your documents, or grant auditors read-only access to your files — a special portal allows your auditor to see only the exemption certificates they request, so you can close audits faster.
