Q&A

Tell us a little bit about Avalara.

The rise of digital commerce and international trade, coupled with constantly shifting taxation and reporting obligations imposed by the global patchwork of local, regional, state, and national taxing authorities, has created a tremendously complex and onerous compliance burden for businesses of all sizes. Avalara’s mission is to provide solutions for this challenge, allowing companies to focus on their core operations. We provide a leading suite of cloud-based solutions designed to improve accuracy and efficiency by automating the processes of determining taxability, identifying applicable tax rates, determining and collecting taxes, preparing and filing returns, remitting taxes, maintaining tax records, and managing compliance documents.

How does Avalara work with QuickBooks?

Avalara integrates with QuickBooks applications. Avalara gives QuickBooks users the ability to manage sales tax easily and efficiently because it’s already built to run seamlessly in QuickBooks.

From quote to order to invoice, Avalara AvaTax provides real-time sales tax calculations — without the time-consuming effort of updating rate tables, tax schedules, or IDs, and a host of other manual tasks.

You’ll be exhibiting at QuickBooks Connect in San Jose, Nov. 6-7. Tell us what attendees can expect to see from your team.

We’ll be sharing information on how Avalara makes calculating and filing sales tax, a complex business requirement, easy and automated for QuickBooks users. Accountants add tremendous value to their customers by knowing about our solution.

Your team has joined us at previous QuickBooks Connect events. What keeps you coming back?

The QuickBooks community is incredible! We love talking to accountants, partners, small business owners, and Intuit employees about our services. They are all so engaged and FUN!

What advice do you have for small businesses?

Do what you do best and let someone else do the rest. We’re sales tax compliance experts who can help you understand and avoid your audit risk.

This year’s event theme is Own the Future. What makes your team excited about the opportunities ahead in the new world of work? How does Avalara help small businesses grow and fuel their success?

Sales tax laws are undergoing tremendous change. Every month, there are changes to state requirements. When small businesses automate the sales tax calculation aspect of their business, it leaves them more time to do what they love. They also get the peace of mind of knowing that whatever is happening with sales tax legislation, Avalara has them covered.

What are you most excited about for this year’s event?

We’re excited to see old friends and make new ones. We’re looking forward to attending our partners’ breakout sessions to cheer them on as they share their expertise with others. There are always inspiring take-aways from the mainstage speakers.

What’s on your team’s must-do list during QBC San Jose?

Meet people, attend sessions to hear what’s new in the QuickBooks world, share our solution, and make sure everyone walks away knowing the Power of Orange. We also love sponsoring Connect After Dark and providing a fun event for people to enjoy.

Meet Avalara and other key partners by joining us at QuickBooks Connect 2019.
