Overall Satisfaction with Avalara

We use AvaTax as a main Sales Tax Calculation, and also have Return services. I am extremely happy with AvaTax as I have used it before and used it at my current company, but I wish I can say the same for Returns. Standard Return Service makes it extremely difficult to obtain answers when it comes to returning filing. It also is difficult to reconcile the sales tax account for accounting. Due to the high growth of my company, we require an upgrade to our current AvaTax and are unable to do so because it is tied with the Intact contract. I seem to have no help from anyone whom I reached out to at Avalara.
  • Nexus creation
  • tax calculation
  • product codes
  • Adding more returns to standard service, may help other companies as well
  • 1:1 Service rather than going to Customer Service every time with any issues
  • Every account should have a TM assigned so we can reach out when needed.

  • Intact
  • QBooks
n/a.. I was not involved in this process
The main core product "AvaTax" works extremely well along with CertCapture. There is always something that sometimes runs into issues- so always room for improvement based on the user's experience
Avalara is the well-known company now for its tax calculation and appears to have the BEST PRODUCTs in the market. Overall, I am happy using the product, but need to figure out how I can upgrade my product and services.
