Overall Satisfaction with Avalara

Avalara has helped our online shipping company keep up with frequent sales tax changes and economic nexus laws so our accounting software and website are automatically charging our customers the correct sales tax amount. Automatic integration with our software and website makes sales tax quick and easy. Avalara gives us the reports we need to file sales tax returns in multiple jurisdictions.
  • Automatic integration with accounting software and website.
  • Updates keep sales tax rates current.
  • Detailed reports to help file tax returns.
  • More options for detail vs. summary reports.
  • Include product returns in price.
  • Include other options of customer exemption storing and return filing options in Avatax for the same price. However, I do understand that some businesses may not want to pay for those options if they’re not using them, so I see why they’re separate.
  • Avalara has great reports to make filing tax returns quick and easy.
  • Avatax makes invoicing customers quick by calculating rates instantly.
  • Avalara notifies us when we're close to or have exceeded economic nexus in other states.
I wasn't involved in the implementation of Avalara, however, I am involved in upgrades. Upgrades occur periodically on our accounting software, Sage 100, and also on our website software. Avalara integrates well with both and we generally have no issues completing updates to our system. Everything works smoothly and effortlessly.
  • Sage 100
  • Website Pipeline
  • CimCloud
Fully integrated by outside IT.
Avalara is easy to download reports for tax returns and processes automatically on sales orders in Sage 100 and our website.
We haven't used the returns filing or exemption certificate management, but I've looked into it and we may in the future if we have more economic nexus taxed states.
Avalara is well suited for keeping up to date on sales tax rate changes. Avalara Avatax helps show us about economic nexus law changes and notifies us when we are close to or have reached a point required for charging sales tax to our customers in those states or jurisdictions.
