Avalara and NetSuite do the heavy lifting

Improve rate accuracy and reduce returned shipments

Easily manage taxability rules across a vast product inventory

Avalara maintains a vast catalog of product taxability rules in order to apply the appropriate tax across thousands of SKUs.

Apply the right tax for each customer — no matter their location or sales channel

Avalara lets you apply a single tax profile to each customer. That means the appropriate tax is applied whether they purchased through your web store, a POS system, or direct sale.

Offload the manual and complex methods of assessing use tax

Avalara’s use tax solution helps you avoid complicated spreadsheets and using expensive custom solutions.

Better assess tax obligations in each state

Avalara's solution tracks your economic nexus tax liabilities in states where you're potentially obligated to collect. Detailed reports will alert you when you're about to trigger tax obligations in new states.

Remove the manual drain of filing and remittance

When it’s time to file, you can reconcile a single worksheet and pay one amount for your total tax liability. Avalara works with state and local governments to file and pay on your behalf.

Let NetSuite do the work of managing exemption certificates

Collect exemption certificates and keep them on file in your ERP. They're easily accessible at the point of sale for future purchases.

Reduce audit risk by validating all your tax-exempt sales

Avalara ensures your tax-exempt customers are keeping their certificates accurate and up to date. When certificates expire or become invalid, the system provides an alert at the time of sale.
