Avalara Pricing Reviews

Pros
  • This is definitely a very dinamic and friendly tool. The level of service and prompt response is impeccable.
  • Avalara is great for our smaller clients because it is so user friendly and allows them the ability to stay up on their sales tax.
  • The product is very easy to use from calculating the sales tax for invoicing to summarizing the monthly data for sales tax filings. It is a very affordable solution.
  • Very easy to implement and use. Handles all of our sales tax requirements with little to no effort on our part. Integrates well with our financial system. Very reasonably priced.
Cons
  • We really do not have any complaints. We have been extremely pleased with AvaTax. It has worked great for us.
  • It could be easier to set things up. It would be nice if there were a SaaS template, for example, to work from.
  • It is very cost prohibitive for small companies who have minor sales in a variety of states, but only has nexus with 3 or 4.
  • Too expensive. Pricing prevents small companies to have access to it. We got over 100% increase from our original starting price.

Handles all tax needs from calculations, reporting, filing, registrations, to even certificate collection, when our ERP system could not. Great value for the price and customer support/account management are amazing.

To be clear, AvaTax is simple for the person preparing the invoices. The setup isn't so simple. But their support is good and once you've invested the time to do the setup, the ongoing utility of the software is high and the pain of administering it is low. I like that it connects to Quickbooks Online, and I like that the cost is low.

I have Avalara integrated on 2 of my online Bigcommerce stores.

As with most Bigcommerce integrations, setup was super easy. Signing up for an account and a couple clicks and you're good to go. Calculating sales tax/setup on the backend of an online store can be time-consuming if you don't have Avalara. I do not use the software to do any tax return prep or reports so the version I use is completely free. You can't beat free for a no hassle sales tax calculation experience. State laws change and it's nice to have software that keeps my stores up to code.

I got the benefit of test-driving the product; this helped me reach the decision that it would not benefit us, but I could definitely see the benefits for larger companies.AvaTax is not designed for small companies - it is a very robust program designed to keep medium to large companies compliant when filing multi-state reports, It has some awesome features that will check you nexus with the states and has the rates built in. Some tweaking may be required, but their customer support team was awesome. We have very little in the way of retail sales as we are a wholesale manufacturer. When I reviewed and test-drove this product, I could definitely see the cost effectiveness for large companies

All Sales Tax compliance, maintenance and reporting is handled via Avalara, and a dedicated "in house" resource is not required.Seamless integration with our ERP system, reporting and ease of reconciliation to our records are awesome! There is no need to maintain Sales Tax tables internally. The value of NOT having to do sales tax reporting in house is immeasurable. Avalara support on day to day issues and special projects is also excellent.

Lots of time saved, peace of mind regarding rates charged and filings.The website is fairly easy to use once you get used to it, including the Avatax and Avacerts websites. Integration was relatively painless with Netsuite and was mostly handled by the Avalara team. No having to worry about rates being correct. With the filing service no having to worry about tax filings.

Nothing, we purchass a product that we have never used because of installation of the Louisiana sales tax tables was overly burdensome. I was sold this product with the promise of "click a button" and your tables will be installed.
