Starting a New Business or Initiative: What You Need to Know for Sales Tax On-Demand Webinar

30 day rental
Online through Vimeo

Has this ever happened to you?

You mastered the ins and outs of your business and suddenly it changes, so you have to reevaluate. A business change can come in many forms. Your company debuts a new product, starts selling on a new channel, or even creates or acquires a new entity. Decisions are made quickly, and sometimes you may be the last to find out. 

The sales tax implications of a new initiative need to be considered before any changes are set in motion. It’s important to learn how to comply with the sales tax rules based on the new plans from the outset instead of scrambling later on.  

This on-demand webinar will cover what sales tax essentials you should inspect when starting a new business or when something new starts in your company such as registration, exemptions, and compliance challenges. You’ll learn how to get yourself closer to strategic planning conversations from the get-go to offer your company sales tax guidance in the future. 

This on-demand webinar is intended for advisors and anyone in corporate finance or accounting whose company/client is starting or building a new product, service, customer base, or even entity. This on-demand webinar is also intended for online or ecommerce sellers who are scaling their businesses and making sales into multiple states and need to understand their sales tax obligations.

More About the New Business or Initiative: What You Need to Know for Sales Tax On-Demand Webinar

When your company gets to work on a new product, service, or entity – do they wrap you into the planning conversations? Doing product planning without the help of a sales tax roadmap makes the process all the more difficult (and could be MORE costly to the company than it has to be). 

There are so many things you need to figure out:

  • What kind of risk does this change open the company up to? 
  • What are you selling and how are you selling it? 
  • Do you understand the sales tax implications when introducing new processes? 
  • Are there exemptions your customers or your company might be able to take advantage of? 
  • Have you opened yourself up to new nexus complications?   
  • Are you manufacturing items or buying and reselling?

This on-demand webinar will provide you with expert advice on how to answer these questions when your company launches a new opportunity. We’ll show you roadblocks and pitfalls to avoid, and what you need to know regarding your sales tax obligations. 

You’ll also learn how to get into the early stages of a new business opportunity and how you can potentially help the company save (time, money, risk and frustration!) You can help guide your company on processes and plans that might qualify for exemptions that a non-sales tax pro can’t. What you sell and how you sell it are major factors in determining your sales tax obligations. 

Post-Wayfair, new products, services, customers, and entities have gotten even more complicated. If you plan on making sales in multiple states, determining your nexus exposure is complicated now that most of the states have passed some kind of remote seller legislation. 

And there are so many other factors to consider – starting with your nexus evaluation and how to register for sales tax to obtaining exemption certificates to figuring out how to calculate sales tax, and so much more. Watch this on-demand webinar to get advice from a sales tax expert on how to confidently handle the process of starting a new business or initiative. 

Specifically, this on-demand webinar will teach you:
  • How your company’s business model – what you’re selling and how you’re selling it – can create sales tax obligations.
  • How to determine where you have sales tax nexus obligations with this new initiative, so you don’t get taken by surprise post-Wayfair. 
  • How to register to collect and remit sales tax, so you can register across the states with confidence, not confusion.
  • Different options you have for calculating sales tax on your transactions, so you can ensure that the correct amount of tax is being charged, every time.
  • How to use exemption certificates and best practices for administering them. 
  • How you may be creating consumer’s use tax obligations, so you can stay compliant and reduce audit risk

Starting a New Business or Initiative: What You Need to Know for Sales Tax is a 90-minute on-demand webinar taught by sales tax expert Diane Yetter of the Sales Tax Institute. Diane will teach you the essentials of starting something new. You’ll learn about nexus, how to register to collect and remit sales tax, different options for calculating sales tax, exemption certificates, and much more. 

The course is not eligible for CPE credit.
