Microsoft Dynamics GP users are accustomed to comprehensive out-of-the-box business management functionality, from operations management and financial management to human resources management and manufacturing. It connects the many moving parts of an organization, giving better visibility into and control over what's going on in the business. Even with these capabilities, calculating sales tax within Microsoft Dynamics GP requires manually entering sales tax information for each location into which a company sells, or creating detailed jurisdictional records for each known tax code. These are time-consuming and thankless tasks.
Luckily, Microsoft and Avalara have created an integration that allows automation of the sales tax process within the Microsoft Dynamics GP interface. With Avalara AvaTax selected within the company card, the sales and use tax rates and jurisdictional assignments happen automatically, extending the power of Microsoft Dynamics GP and ensuring greater compliance with sales tax rules and regulations.
Avalara participates in the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD) accreditation program and follows Microsoft's Statement of Direction for Dynamics GP. As Microsoft adds new features and releases, the Dynamics GP integration will be upgraded to remain compatible.
