Avalara, a sales and use tax software provider for small and midsized businesses, revealed a new enterprise resource planning product fully integrated with Version 8.0 of Microsoft's Great Plains. AvaTax ST is to be used in combination with Great Plains for sales and use tax calculation, mostly for companies that sell in a number of different tax jurisdictions. The new software will instantly validate customer addresses, and perform tax jurisdiction research so that the correct amount is paid and can generate remittance reports for further evaluation, said Rory Rawlings, president and founder of Avalara, in a statement. For companies who sell in multiple tax jurisdictions, the software will create a single specific tax schedule for all customers, rather than one for every jurisdiction. The software will take into account sales tax information, customer exemptions, product taxability, amnesties and sourcing rules. Avalara will be at the Microsoft Convergence Conference in San Diego, March 6 to 9, 2005, to further explain and demonstrate the product.
