Every company selling online is grappling with the proliferation of laws that vary by country or state on sales tax and VAT collection. The Supreme Court’s decision on Wayfair has led most states to pass new laws requiring online sellers to collect and remit sales tax, with a myriad of requirements, definitions and deadlines. This also has repercussions for European eCommerce businesses selling into the USA.
Whether they sell online to consumers or businesses, companies must educate themselves on these new laws and figure out how to comply. This webinar will provide valuable information about the state of sales tax and VAT legislation and on the technology that can automate the increasingly onerous task of collecting tax and remitting or returning those taxes to individual state and local revenue departments. Attendees will be introduced to cloud-based systems that can easily integrate with existing accounting systems, expedite tax reporting and facilitate compliance with all applicable tax laws.
