“AvaTax ST is a stellar example of the evolution of web-service technology,” Jared Vogt, Chairman and CEO of Avalara noted. “Web-service solutions, such as AvaTax ST, offer small and mid-sized businesses flexible, on-demand services at a fraction of the price of purchasing and maintaining software
in-house. AvaTax ST inexpensively and seamlessly eliminates the burden of sales tax compliance issues – while dramatically reducing audit risk. Linked to the end-user’s core accounting system, AvaTax ST eliminates data entry, research, inaccuracies, and reporting from multiple sources of data
at remittance time.
“For small and mid-sized businesses, we eliminate the whole bag of worries that comes with selling products and services across jurisdictional boundaries,” Vogt said. “Our clients never have to deal with sales tax again. And why should they? It’s a cost to their business that has no strategic value other than fulfillment of a statutory requirement, and we eliminate that cost – replacing it with a cost-saving benefit that drops
directly to the bottom line.” Monthly transaction prices for AvaTax ST for ACCPAC Advantage Series start at $99.95 per month.
