Nexus – Where Do I Have It and What Do I Do? Webinar

Nexus is a term that you’ll hear often in the world of sales and use tax, and for good reason.  Nexus is the factor that determines where you need to collect and remit sales tax on your sales and pay use tax on your purchases.  It’s an important concept, and it is essential that sellers – both those who sell online and those who don’t – understand where they have nexus and what they need to do if that’s the case. If you have nexus in a state and are not collecting and remitting sales tax, you are facing financial risk.

It’s the beginning of the year and for those in the state tax field it means the beginning of the state and local legislative season.  States vary as to how long their session is and even whether they will consider tax legislation in the session.  If your company has experienced unfavorable audit results or wants to attempt a legislative resolution, now is the time to start that process.  And of course, you need to keep on top of any proposals that could negatively impact your company.  This 90-minute webinar taught by Greg Turner of the Council on State Taxation (COST) and Diane Yetter of

Sales Tax for E-Commerce Webinar

Knowing when and how to collect and remit sales and use tax can be particularly difficult for e-commerce businesses.  The growth of the e-commerce market has outpaced the states’ development of tax laws to properly determine how to characterize a sale for tax treatment.  And the landscape for e-commerce is changing.  With more states adopting click-through nexus laws (“Amazon” laws) and affiliate nexus laws, it can be difficult to keep track of everything you need to know.  Additionally, the proposed Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 could lead to more changes if it’s pas

VAT vs. Sales Tax – What Are the Differences and How Do They Work? Webinar

Businesses today are most likely global and rarely operating in a single country.   To support customers that can be located anywhere, businesses often have a complex supply chain that allows them to service customers beyond their border.  But when is a business required to register and collect tax in a foreign country?  In the United States, we call this “nexus.” In Canada and other VAT countries, it is called “permanent establishment.” In the U.S., we have “drop shipments.” In the EU it is called “triangulation.” Some of the rules are similar, but others are very different.
