E-commerce, new selling platforms, robust shipping mechanisms, and many other modern business “conveniences” help companies grow their business in new and exciting ways. However, part of any business growth, pivot, or change must be accompanied by setting up processes to ensure you stay sales tax compliant. Today, that is almost impossible without an indirect tax automation system in place.
If your company is in the market for a sales tax automation system, there are more solutions available now than ever before. That’s a good thing! But with so many options available, it is also harder than ever to figure out which system is right for your company… and the stakes are high. If you select the right system, it can make everyone’s life easier and result in major cost and time savings. But if you select the wrong system, then you may have a frustrating mess on your hands.
This 90-minute webinar will map out all the considerations you need to make in selecting a tax automation system or tools for your company that meet your business needs. You’ll learn about many of the different automation options available in the market today – from tax engines to add-ons to bots – to help you manage growing multi-state sales tax obligations.

Selecting a sales tax automation system can be overwhelming, but it is a vitally important decision to make. With all kinds of new sales tax legislation being passed, companies with nexus in multiple states will likely need to purchase and install a sales tax automation system if they haven’t already in order to keep up and stay organized.
You want to go into your indirect tax automation selection process fully equipped with the knowledge you need to make the right decision. Once you have a firm and in-depth understanding of the tax activities you want to automate, you can move into exploring the landscape of automation options available.
Depending on the nature of your business, you may be eligible to use something like the Streamlined Sales Tax Project’s free tax collection technology services through a Certified Service Provider (CSP) or you may be able to use more cutting-edge options like bots, artificial intelligence, or machine learning to introduce new efficiencies into your tax processes.
This webinar will save you time, trouble, and money by helping you narrow down your options to select the sales tax system that is right for you.
