Overall Satisfaction with Avalara

We utilize the AvaTax and AvaCert system. The Avalara system is used throughout the company for verifying tax rates to taxing company transactions and processing of the Sales tax returns. We also utilize the certificate system to keep track of customers that have valid exemptions. The Avalra system saves the company many hours of manual calculations and time for processing monthly sales tax filings.
  • Avalara does a great job at processing returns timely
  • Avalara does a great job updating tax rates to make sure they are paid to the correct jurisdictions
  • Having a way to process construction use tax
  • Being able to balance the tax returns back to the General Ledger more easily
  • Makes it easier not to have to have a whole team of employees to process tax returns.
Work you & your implementation team and make sure to utilize all the resources and understand all the process while Avalara is being set up. There are a lot of great features and you will want to make sure you understand how to use them.
Avalara has a lot of good features and is pretty easy to navigate through.
We utilize the managed returns filings and the exemption certificates. Both of the systems are great and saves our company a lot of time each month for sales tax compliance.
Avalara is well suit for companies that are looking to outsource their sales and use tax filings and being able to keep track of their certificates. The main area of improvement would be to able to handle construction use tax transactions.
