Sales tax and use tax are complementary. If you make a purchase of taxable property and the seller doesn’t collect sales tax on the transaction, you are required to pay consumer’s use tax.

The challenge is determining the correct amount of consumer’s use tax to pay. It’s important to do it and to make sure that you’re doing it correctly. Since many companies aren’t aware that they have a use tax obligation, states are frequently on the lookout for use tax audits.

On the other side of the coin, since the Wayfair decision was handed down, many businesses are reacting by starting to collect sales tax, and this can have a major impact on purchasers. Post-Wayfair, will all your suppliers begin collecting tax? If so, can you trust that they are doing it correctly? If someone in your company isn’t monitoring this, your costs could increase and there is a very good chance that you may be overpaying sales and use tax.

In both situations, you need to be sure that you are monitoring and paying the correct amount of sales tax and consumer’s use tax.

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.

Additional Details About the "Use Tax Accrual & Tax Validation: The Forgotten Aspects of Compliance" Webinar

Relying on the state to determine your use tax liability is not a good position to take. This webinar will offer ideas from simple stand-alone solutions to integrated third party tax engine solutions that can help reduce the time involved from the accounts payable department on this critical task.

When use tax is properly tracked and reported….

  • The company saves money
  • There is less impact on company resources
  • Audit liabilities are reduced
  • Penalties and interest are minimized

In addition, you’ll learn how to keep track of what your suppliers are doing when it comes to charging sales tax on your purchases. You’ll learn about options such as direct pay authority and purchasing companies as ways to take control. Knowing your options and finding the right tool to fit your needs is key to paying the right amount of sales and use tax, every time.
