Tax Implications of Drop Shipments Webinar

More and more businesses are establishing processes that eliminate maintaining their own inventory.  Although this can save money for the business, it could be creating other issues related to sales tax and the ability to purchase your inventory exempt for resale.  Drop shipment transactions can provide a number of unique challenges to the sales and use tax practitioner.  This 90-minute webinar taught by Diane Yetter of the Sales Tax Institute will provide you with helpful insights into understanding the sales and use tax treatment of drop shipments and arm you with information to respond to your suppliers and customers who raise issues with sales tax on drop shipments.   



Learning Objectives Include:


  • Identify what is a drop shipment transaction
  • Understand the sales tax challenges with drop shipments
  • Learn different options for exemption documentation
  • Identify which states have special rules based on inventory location and delivery
  • Gain an understanding of the states that require registration to issue a resale certificate
  • Learn which states require tax calculation on a price other than the wholesale price



Who should attend?
This webinar is intended any business that engages in drop shipments – either as the shipper, the seller or the customer.   Business owners, Finance, Sales and Operations personnel will benefit from the session.  The course is also designed for general practitioners, with minimal to no experience.
