Navigating the Complex World of Sales Tax Compliance

How Squire Partners with Businesses Using Sovos and Avalara

By: Deneise Garcia

In today’s fast-paced world, where transactions cross borders with a click of a mouse and tax regulations are in constant flux, keeping up with the demands of US sales tax compliance can be a tall task for many businesses, not to mention if your company is global and extends beyond US borders. Leading tax compliance software systems like Sovos and Avalara have made things much more palatable but still, leveraging a trusted advisor and tax expert remains invaluable in not only configuring but utilizing these software solutions.

The Importance of Sales Tax Compliance

Compliance with sales tax requirements is not just a legal necessity, it’s a critical component of your business’s operational and financial health. Incorrect sales tax calculations can lead to audits, penalties, and fines—which can all unnecessarily detract from the bottom line. It gets even more complicated in the digital marketplace, where services and products can be sold all over the world in multiple jurisdictions, each with its unique set of rules and rates. Sovos and Avalara have become indispensable tools.

Leveraging Sovos and Avalara for Your Business

Sovos: Comprehensive Tax Compliance

Sovos offers a robust suite of solutions designed to tackle the vast spectrum of tax compliance challenges. From sales and use tax to VAT and excise tax, Sovos can tackle even the most minute and perplexing tax rules all over the globe. However, there can be a learning curve in getting the software optimized to each business’s unique needs. A well-trained sales tax advisor can ensure that your compliance is seamless, accurate, and up to date with the latest regulations.

Avalara: Simplifying Tax Automation

Avalara’s strength lies in its ability to automate tax calculations and filings, integrating effortlessly with your existing business systems. This automation extends across sales and use tax, VAT, and more, providing real-time accuracy in tax calculations. Avalara’s technology  can greatly streamline your processes while minimizing errors and freeing up valuable resources to focus on your core business activities. But again, the success of any system lies with the configuration and setup.  Utilizing a tax and accounting expert—like our teammates and partners at Squire—can get any business up and ensure that your compliance is seamless, accurate, and up to date with the latest regulations.
