ST filing on the client's behalf....if it captures the correct data.The concept of Avalara is good...calculate sales tax based on ship to address, file returns for various states. Avalara is the ST experts so internal knowledge does not have to be CPA level.

Avalara definitely saves time and money by automating the sales tax. As well as keeps us in compliance, as I could not keep track of the sales tax we owe in every state when tax rates continually change.You don't have to think about it. Once you get it set up, it runs smoothly on its own and only requires a monthly review to tie out to your GL. Having Avalara remit sales tax on my behalf is a great option.

We love how AvaTax automatically calculates and reports on sales tax - there don't seem to be any competitors that can do it as well as Avalara does. The Magento extension works perfectly and we run into issues only occasionally.

It drastically reduces the amount of time required to calculate sales tax, remit tax returns, and reconcile. I like the reliability of the software, the lack of problems that arise, and the degree of simplification it brings to what could be a difficult process.

Manually managing tax compliance requirements can be time consuming, and extremely difficult to get right. It can be expensive too - businesses can face stiff fines and penalties if they get it wrong. Automation reduces the complexity and risk, allowing businesses to
focus on their primary expertise.
