The sales tax process isn’t simple, is it? There are so many different pieces of information necessary to manage a company’s sales tax. I like to say sales tax is a team sport – it isn’t something you can do on your own. And it needs to be managed correctly because if it isn’t, it could cost your company.
Managing sales tax is a responsibility that most businesses have, and chances are good that many professionals don’t realize all that is involved. Are you aware of the sales tax data you should be gathering and tracking to stay on top of sales tax? And would you like to know about the tools that can help do the work for you so you’re not bogged down in administrative duties? There is much more to sales tax than just getting the returns out the door each month. Tracking nexus, taxability and business operations all are key to keeping your sales tax process on track.
Who Should Attend? This webinar is intended for financial and operations personnel—including tax, general accounting, accounts payable, sales, tax technology, purchasing and credit—who deal with sales and use tax as part of their responsibilities. The course is also designed for general practitioners, with minimal to no experience.
