Ensures customers with valid exemption certificates are not charged tax

Pros and Cons

  • "When we have filed VDAs, AvaTax allows us to calculate correct taxes even for periods before we began using it."
  • "Keeps electronic copies of the exemption certificates."
  • "Warns of expiring certificates."
  • "Interfaces with AvaTax to ensure customers with valid exemption certificates are not charged tax(es)."
  • "Avalara does not yet have an automated way of handling "multiple points of use", at least the way we have it installed."

What other advice do I have?

Pay close attention to detail. It can only give you good results if you put in the correct information both in setting up the system and providing the sales and exemption information (jurisdiction nexus type of tax, dates, etc.). Use their support as they are very helpful.
