Sales tax and compliance automation provider Avalara has formed a strategic alliance with PrimeGlobal North America, enabling its member firms to access Avalara’s online resource center and take advantage of the company’s accountant-centric partner programs.
PrimeGlobal is the third largest association of independent accounting firms around the globe, serving over 350 member firms, operating from 750 offices, in 85 countries. The North America chapter has 53 top accounting firms.
The strategic relationship with PrimeGlobal is part of Avalara’s larger efforts to create greater awareness and closer working relationships with accounting firms across the U.S. and globally, according to Ray Bigley, vice president of business development for Avalara’s Accounting and Advisory Services Program.
“PrimeGlobal is a major player in the international accounting association community, and we are very pleased to begin this exciting new partnership with them and their member firms,” said Bigley. “Our new alliance gives PrimeGlobal firms instant access to the most up-to-date SUT and VAT tax tools and educational resources available anywhere – enabling them to better assist their clients and enhance their status as trusted advisors.”
In July, Avalara formed a similar alliance with AGN International North America, which at the time
had 45 accounting firms located in North America and is part of AGN International - a nearly 200 member group.
