Online sales represent a fast-growing percentage of total retail sales in the U.S. – particularly as the pandemic pushed more businesses online.
The acceleration of e-commerce presents immense opportunities for businesses of all sizes to reach new customers. However, with more online sales comes more sales tax complexity.
If your e-commerce sales have exploded, you have likely triggered new sales tax collection obligations. Not to mention the added complications that arise if you are selling through a marketplace. You need to have a firm grasp on what your sales tax requirements are and how to handle them correctly.
Join this webinar if you make online sales, either independently, through a marketplace (Amazon, eBay, Etsy), or a combination of both. You’ll learn critical sales tax issues for e-commerce businesses like nexus (when and why you need to register to collect tax), sourcing, fulfillment issues, drop shipment challenges, and much more.
Who should attend?
This webinar is intended for e-commerce businesses who make sales through their own websites, online marketplaces such as Amazon, or both. This webinar is also intended for financial and operations personnel—including tax, general accounting, accounts payable, sales, tax technology, purchasing, and accounts receivable/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.
The world of e-commerce allows businesses of all sizes to sell on a variety of digital channels to reach new customers in new ways. Sales through online marketplaces are surging and digital shopping experiences are becoming more customized than ever.
As you grow your e-commerce business across multiple channels, your sales tax function must grow and adapt as well. The economic and marketplace nexus legislation states enacted following the landmark 2018 South Dakota v. Wayfair decision ensures that nobody slips through the cracks when it comes to sales tax collection requirements.
Here’s the thing… in the fifth year of Wayfair legislation, states are less patient for sellers to come into sales tax compliance. We have been seeing the frequency of audits increasing with growing liabilities. And the states are not being very forgiving when it comes to tax liability and penalties.
It’s time to face your sales tax obligations head-on to keep potential audits and penalties at bay.
This webinar will clarify significant sales tax issues for e-commerce businesses based on the channels you sell on, your fulfillment model, and your business locations. You’ll get the sales tax knowledge you need to help your business thrive whether you sell on your own website, on a marketplace, or make sales of digital goods and services.
