Brazil Tax Content, Determination Technology, and Filing Services added to Avalara’s Global Tax Compliance Cloud Platform
Atlanta, GA – March 17, 2015 – Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software delivering compliance solutions related to VAT, sales tax, and other transactional taxes, today announced it will be integrating tax content, determination technology, and filing services for Brazil into its Avalara AvaTax™ service supporting Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail customers.
“Brazilian taxes are some of the most complicated in the world for businesses to process accurately and efficiently,” said Avalara Founder and CEO Scott McFarlane. “Our new functionality for Brazil will allow Microsoft Dynamics AX customers to address this complexity both within and outside of the country. It’s the latest addition to our global compliance cloud platform, and Microsoft Dynamics AX users will be among the first to access this capability.”
Avalara and Microsoft have a long standing relationship, and have taken part in numerous collaborations through the years. Most recently, Avalara and Microsoft announced an agreement which simplified the process to leverage AvaTax within Microsoft Dynamics AX solutions.
“Avalara has been honored to receive Microsoft’s SaaS Partner of the Year recognition and three of our integrations – Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and Microsoft Dynamics AX – have received Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD) designations,” said McFarlane. “Brazil has a highly complex, multi-jurisdictional tax system. This new functionality will take our relationship to a new level by better serving the global needs of Dynamics AX users.”
