As an accounting firm, is offering sales tax automation solutions to your clients on your priority to-do list? If not, it should be. Two experts in the area of sales tax automation offer their perspectives on why.

Learn more about how automating helps you and your firm assist your clients with voluntary disclosure and audit defense.


Judy Vorndran has been specializing in sales and use tax compliance and consulting for over 20 years. She says sales tax automation is one of the most effective risk-reducers for accounting and bookkeeping firms that advise companies, especially those operating in operating in multiple jurisdictions.

In general, she says, businesses that have automated “haven’t had large assessments, data is easy to pull, and the auditor is in and out in a very short period of time.” The story can be quite different for those clients relying on manual processes for sales tax compliance.

Increasing accuracy and efficiency with transaction processing
Improving your ability to effectively scale as you expand geographically, add products or services, and acquire customers
Allowing you to reallocate resources to value-add tasks such as refunds and beneficial tax positions
Making audit defense easier with accessible data and customized reporting capabilities

Avalara’s Accounting Top 100 leaderboard (the “Leaderboard”) is assembled using a list of accounting professional users that’s curated by manual entry as well as by Rise.Global's internal Twitter search functionality. We reserve the right to change scoring metrics used for ranking and to exclude anyone from the list, in our sole discretion. The Leaderboard is not an endorsement, recommendation or sponsorship of any of the accounting professionals on the Leaderboard, and we do not make any representation or guarantee of their ability or reliability. Assessments by different methods or based on different information may yield different results. The Leaderboard is only a starting point to gather information about accounting professionals, and you should not rely on it to decide whether to hire an accounting professional.
