What is an Avalara?
Avalara (AvaTax) – this application is an automated cloud-based solution for your tax compliance transactions across the United States and the World. Avalara AvaTax allows you to collect sales tax for multiple states inside the USA.
From the beginning, our dedicated team of revolutionaries has worked day and night to help businesses of all sizes achieve compliance by providing a fast, easy, and accurate way to manage transactional taxes, from calculating rates to preparing and filing returns.
Businesses of all sizes face the burden of accurately calculating, collecting, and remitting transactional taxes. Before Avalara came around, most were forced to manage this burden with cumbersome and inaccurate manual processes or expensive enterprise hardware and software systems. Avalara changed all that by pioneering a cloud-based software platform that provides an end-to-end suite of sales and other transactional tax compliance solutions.
Avalara works within your own financial, billing, eCommerce, or point of sale system to deliver tax calculations in real-time via a secure Internet connection. Once configured, you don’t have to worry about ever-changing, impenetrable rates, rules, boundaries, exemptions, tax holidays, reporting requirements, filing deadlines, etc. etc. etc. Our cloud-based software platform manages the complexity and simplifies the process of sales tax and other transaction tax compliance cost-effectively and with eCommerce-class scale, speed, and reliability.
