Collect, store, manage, and renew tax documents from your vendors and buyers safely in the cloud, instead of dealing with a mess of digital or paper files.

Anytime access

Avoid audit nightmares by having all your certificates in one place, just a few clicks away. Bulk export your documents, or grant auditors read-only access to your files.

Smart exemptions

CertCapture syncs with your transaction tax software to automatically apply exemptions to purchases. Now that’ll keep customers happy.

Easy does it

CertCapture collects and validates new certificates during checkout, or allows customers to submit their information online. For expiring or invalid documents, send automated renewal requests.

Check all the boxes

Be sure the certificates you collect contain all the right details. Apply your own rules and data fields to improve reporting and close audits faster.
