When it comes to online sales tax, the challenges keep mounting. As online B2B companies were still dealing with the changes in sales tax management responsibilities stemming from the Supreme Court’s 2018 Wayfair decision, they got hit with a new set of frustrations in the wake of – COVID-19. So now in addition to sorting through all the changes across state laws regarding responsibilities for collecting and remitting sales tax—and managing the tax-exemption certificates for qualified customers—companies must carry out these complex duties while also practicing social distancing and relying more on network connections for home-based professional staff.
This webinar will explore how online B2B companies are using best practices and cloud-based tax technology to ensure they comply with a mess of new regulations and requirements, including sales thresholds for their own ecommerce sites and third-party marketplaces, and sales tax rules that can vary by product category and by state. As companies begin selling new products in new markets to address changing customer demand related to the pandemic, they often fall into new areas of tax-related responsibilities.
Some of the takeaways from this webinar:
- Realizing the scope of tax-compliance changes across the 45 states, plus the District of Columbia, that charge sales tax;
- Insight on what to watch out for regarding what can be surprising new sales-tax processing requirements;
- Examples of how cloud-based tax-management-automation tools help online B2B sellers remain compliant with tax rules and operate more effectively under today’s pandemic pressures.
