Software Solutions: Save Time & Money
The rules surrounding sales tax can be complex and confusing. Big corporations have problems with sales tax, leaving the small business with even greater frustration. From being penalized for not putting a notice of "no sales tax included" on an invoice to having a requirement to collect tax when a customer has downloaded an app on a phone, the states are getting creative, aggressive, and making it nearly impossible to follow the rules.

This session will discuss the integration of small business accounting software packages from QuickBooks and the sales tax solution options of Avalara.

Since businesses are now selling to customers throughout the country, and states are requiring businesses to comply with their ever-changing sales tax rules, you can't afford to miss this session. The cost of doing nothing is significant and the days of ignoring these rules are gone. This session will give you the information necessary to cost-effectively move forward and keep pace with these changes. The software solutions are affordable and practical - an unexpected sales tax audit is expensive and burdensome.

Join us for a session outlining the basics of sales tax as well as the responsibilities that arise when nexus is established, and learn how we work with software to streamline tax reporting and other solutions.
