60 minutes


A how-to guide to ensure best practices for excise tax compliance

Excise tax determination for the oil and gas industry is unquestionably one of the most complex, indirect tax ecosystems. Understanding the nuances of why and how to manage this tax often take years of experience. To ensure accuracy, it’s important that your existing processes and any automation solutions are fully optimized. This webinar, presented by Avalara’s excise tax expert, will help you do just that.

If  transitioning to automation or changing your platform is your best path to compliance, our speakers will also provide tips on how to move forward to gain project approval. The complexity of excise tax alone is enough to make building a business case for automation tricky – especially if you are not in control of the budget.  

Join excise tax expert John Beaty as he discusses ways to:

  • Identify gaps in your current processes or automation solution
  • Understand ways that you might be able to optimize these systems and practices
  • Build a case for new automation or a platform change
