How exactly does sales tax work from a corporate standpoint? How is sales tax determined, processed and submitted?  Whether you are working in a company or supporting a company with their financial operations, understanding the basics of sales and use tax is imperative.  

When sales tax suddenly becomes part of your job, it can be hard to get the basics down. Even seasoned finance and accounting practitioners can be confused by the twists and turns of the U.S. sales tax system – there is so much sales tax 101 information to know and few places to find reliable, up-to-date information. 

This webinar helps you move past confused beginner to understanding sales tax 101 concepts. 

It also includes updated coverage of sales tax nexus, a fundamental sales tax concept, to reflect changes created by the created by the June 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision, South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. and all the subsequent state level changes. 


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.
