Course Description

Collecting and remitting sales tax in a complex sales environment can be challenging, especially for companies that sell across multiple states. Collecting and remitting sales tax on behalf of your customers can be a daunting task when faced with calculations for over 12,000 taxing jurisdictions. How can you get accurate calculations, quickly, when rules and rates are constantly changing?  Join us in this lively discussion and demonstration to get tips on  how automation can help to manage this process, including determining exempt products or services, knowing when to collect sales tax and when to collect use tax. And, most importantly, we’ll discuss how to remain compliant with state audit boards by processing returns to the right places at the right time.

In addition to shining some light on these challenges, we'll also quickly dive into a Sage Intacct demo environment to show how to completely automate the process.
