The arrival of the sharing economy has been a big game changer. Companies like Airbnb and Uber have radically transformed the hotel and transportation industries. But like the e-commerce boom before it, the sharing economy brings with it a whole slew of new tax issues and complications for businesses.

Not to mention tax obligations that you may not even be aware of. Are you sure you’re doing the right thing when it comes to handling taxes in the sharing economy?

Who should attend? This course is intended for individuals or companies who deal with sharing economy transactions. 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.
