Overall Satisfaction with Avalara

It is being used by the finance department to calculate and remit sales tax across states that we do business in.
  • Calculation of sales tax.
  • Reports by state and period to remit sales tax.
  • East of setup for various types of sales types and codes.
  • I think it would be great it Avalara offered advisory services, i.e., where should we be collecting sales tax, and what types of services are taxable/ non-taxable in each state.
  • Avalara saves a lot of time that someone would otherwise have to spend calculating payments by state and maintaining rates.
Not applicable, was not involved with the implementation.
  • Sage Accounting
  • SAP
In both instances, our third-party developers work with Avalara's team to facilitate.
Overall positive, while reflecting the reality that there is some room for improvement.
Currently we only use Avalara for tax calculation, but have considered the service for managing returns. It will come down to cost considerations.
I think it's really useful in cases where you are remitting sales tax for many states and localities since Avalara is responsible for staying up to date with rates, etc.
