Spending too much time on tax activities

Have you ever actually sat down to calculate, or even estimate how much time your company spends on activities related to sales tax collection? If not, the results may shock you. A Forrester study surveying organizations that use ERP software (like Microsoft Dynamics GP) found that many of them had what amounted to two employees spending 70% of their work day manually invoicing customers and calculating sales tax.

Making do with ERP built in sales tax functions that fall short

Many business accounting systems have some simple tax functionality built into them. However, they still need someone to manually input and/or update information. They also are often not set up to deal with more complicated tax decisions, leaving room for error.

Relying on rate tables or DOR websites to stay up to date on tax rule changes

Finding the tax information you need on the Department of Revenue’s website or in rate tables is a big drain on your productivity. Particularly, if updating tax information in your ERP is something your accounting staff is unable to do with our help from IT. Or, if your business is growing into new geographic locations that have sales tax rates and laws you’re unfamiliar with.

Manually handling sales tax is time-consuming

Drastically reduce the amount of time your accounting team is spending researching and calculating sales tax with AvaTax, an Avalara sales tax add on for Dynamics GP. It is an easily scalable, subscription and cloud-based software service that’s designed to apply sales tax, as well as any necessary VAT in real time as the transaction is taking place.
And, because the entire system runs in the cloud, set up and integration is a breeze. You can get up and running quickly and erase the hardware costs that come with deploying new systems on premise.
