ArcherPoint and Avalara to Present Lunch and Learn Webinar

May 28, 2014

Presentation Will Discuss 8 Ways to INCREASE Your Company’s Sales Tax Audit Risk

ATLANTA, GA – May 28, 2014 – ArcherPoint, LLC, a Microsoft Dynamics Gold ERP Partner specializing in Microsoft Dynamics NAV solutions and upgrades, announced it will partner with Avalara, a leading provider of cloud-based software that delivers a broad array of compliance solutions related to sales tax and other transactional taxes, to present a Lunch and Learn webinar, “8 Ways to INCREASE Your Company’s Sales Tax Audit Risk,” on June 10, 2014, at 2:00 PM ET.

”The average annual cost of manual sales tax compliance is around $24,000, which is a tremendous cost, especially given that manual compliance is a primary reason for errors,” said Suzanne Scanlan, ArcherPoint Marketing Manager. “If you rely solely on manual accounting solutions or disconnected tax tools, you might be unintentionally pulling a trigger that could lead to an audit notice.”

Handling core business functions, like sales tax compliance, via tax tables, spreadsheets, and xml files requires manually reviewing rate, rule, and boundary changes for each jurisdiction into which taxable sales are made. It also involves an encyclopedic knowledge of product and service taxability, rigorous tracking of state and federal statutory changes, and an expert-level grasp of exemptions, destination-based sourcing, and other sales tax related minutiae. Most companies do not have access to these resources.

The costs associated with negative audit findings can wipe out the profits a business…you might be unintentionally pulling a trigger that could lead to an audit notice.

In this live webinar, Mark Rowe, Regional Sales Manager with Avalara, will discuss ways companies might be unknowingly increasing their audit risk. Topics covered will include:

  • The 8 most common sales tax mistakes
  • How to address compliance proactively
  • How to stay up to date on sales tax changes
