How can Sage Sales Tax help Sage 100 ERP (MAS 90/200) users? It’s simple.

With Sage Sales Tax, by Avalara you have only ONE schedule, —instead of hundreds or thousands. Different from other tax calculation solutions, there is no need to research and assign each customer to a specific tax schedule. There is just one single schedule that applies to all customers: AvaTax. As a result, setting up new customers takes a fraction of the time with no need to ever research a tax jurisdiction or rate change again.

Avalara ensures 100% accuracy for each and every transaction. First, they verify and correct the address, validate the jurisdiction, and then calculate your transaction using the correct rate. Their in-house compliance team will research the address and tax jurisdiction boundaries and rates to maintain the data, so you never have to worry about making a tax choice decision again.

Avalara provides you “best practices” in sales and use tax compliance. Reporting includes complete detail of every transaction, along with reason and location codes, whether it was taxable on not, and revenue and cost account reconciliation. Avalara saves significant data entry time in adding new customers, maintaining tax schedules and details for existing customers, and distribution and accruals of payables.

Service activation takes minutes, and integration is seamless, which means no end user training is required. Avalara integrates with more accounting, eCommerce,  POS, and Third-Party applications than any other sales and use tax solution. There is no risk to your data or accounting system integrity. Avalara populates sales and use tax information which is then incorporated into your ERP internal process.
