Avalara offers the compliance benefits enterprise businesses need

Challenge:
Applying tax rates by ZIP code, accounting for tax holidays, and coordinating rates with information across business systems can cause inaccuracies leading to risk exposure.

Solution:
With Avalara’s SaaS-based system, you get:

  • The expertise of our in-house team of tax researchers
  • Regular updates across the 13,000+ jurisdictions in the United States
  • Rates based on street address and geolocation, not ZIP code, for improved accuracy
  • Built-in address validation
  • Enhanced customization with Advanced Transaction Rules
  • Automatic updates when we make changes based on new rules and regulations from around the world that could impact compliance

Challenge:
Implementing a new tax solution is a daunting task. It can be expensive, disruptive, and potentially incompatible with your existing systems.

Solution: 
Avalara offers 1,000 signed partner integrations with:

  • ERPs
  • Accounting programs
  • Ecommerce platforms and shopping carts
  • Billing systems
  • Procurement
  • POS
  • Other business systems
Our API was built by developers, for developers to help you tailor Avalara to your business or integrate with custom systems.

Challenge: 
New systems are often expensive and resource-intensive for IT departments, especially when they require an investment in keeping on-premises solutions up to date and running smoothly.

Solution: 
Avalara’s SaaS solutions provide compliance without ongoing IT intervention, reducing time and cost investment:

  • No platform to host locally, unless required by your business
  • No specialized hardware systems to maintain
  • Updates are sent regularly via the cloud

Challenge: 
What may be good for business can be bad for business systems. Investing in a new solution can be hard to justify when growth or change are expected in the near term.

Solution: 
Avalara’s enterprise solution is built from products available as a suite or independently.

You can:

  • Choose the products you need now
  • Add products as your business grows or expands into new markets
  • Use prebuilt integrations to improve tax compliance while avoiding vendor lock-in

Challenge: 
Implementing new systems can be expensive and disruptive, and may not be worth the hassle for your tax team, especially if it takes a long time to figure out.

Solution: 
The Avalara interface is user-centric and intuitive. Your tax team can easily:

  • See exactly what your tax responsibilities are
  • Generate reports
  • Look up tax rate details
  • Create tax rules
  • So much more
Helpful support specialists are available to walk you through challenges or questions you have.

Challenge: 
Investing in a tax solution is only worth it if the performance is reliable. No one wants to spend a lot of money only to have delays and downtime disrupt business.

Solution: 
Avalara includes:

  • Tax rates provided at the point of sale, without interrupting the purchase process, even during peak sales periods
  • Services hosted on AWS, with native redundancy and failover capabilities to help your business run smoothly

Challenge: 
No business wants to be in the news for a security breach. While offloading tax compliance tasks sounds great, creating another vector for data sounds risky.

Solution: 
Our 24/7 security operations center is dedicated to protecting your data and reducing risk with:

  • Dedicated security programs
    - Application security
    - IT security
    - Security Incident Response Team (SIRT)
    - Security risk and compliance
    - Red team
    - Cloud security
