Avalara helps solve tax compliance challenges for the hospitality industry

Challenge:
Whether you own one property or a chain of hotels, maintaining accurate tax rates and rules is a labor-intensive process. Getting rates wrong or not understanding your obligations can result in overpaying or underpaying taxes.

Solution:
Avalara experts track lodging tax rates at the city, county, and state level, and regular updates are sent to your system automatically.

Challenge:
Manually consolidating data to figure out your tax obligations across multiple business systems, marketplaces, and booking sites is a time-consuming process, prone to human error.

Solution:
Avalara can integrate with your existing hospitality marketplace and business platforms. You'll get consistent rates and reporting across your sales channels and internal systems.

Challenge:
Preparing, filing, and remitting reports for city, county, and state jurisdictions requires a lot of hands-on effort.

Solution:
Off-load returns preparation, filing, and remitting to Avalara. Your tax data is consolidated from multiple business systems, then filed based on deadlines for each jurisdiction.

Challenge:
Guests expect great service from the moment they book until they check out — especially when an interaction involves a transaction.

Solution:
Avalara can help you make sure guests aren’t overcharged on taxes for lodging, food and beverages, sundries, or other purchases from your property. And by leaving tax compliance to us, you can focus on the other things that make their stays memorable.
