Sales tax is an imbedded part of your daily life as a retailer. And if it’s not yet, it should be!
Due to the high volume of sales faced by retailers, it is essential to make sure that you are not only properly collecting and remitting sales tax, but also managing all of the other sales tax issues that are involved.
Every phase from the introduction of a new product to that product making it into the hands of the final consumer has sales tax implications that you can’t overlook. As a retailer, you need to understand how all the processes that surround your products—from contracting and invoicing to calculating tax to drop shipping to shipping and handling to returns—must be handled from a sales tax perspective.
This webinar will teach you the ins and outs of handling sales tax on retail sales. You’ll learn how to optimize your business processes to make sure you are staying sales tax compliant no matter your type of retail business or the platforms you sell on.
