Avalara announced that cloud-based multichannel commerce platform Shopify Plus has completed certification and fully integrated Avalara’s Compliance Cloud solution directly into its platform.

The integration will make the solution directly available to Shopify Plus merchants, streamlining and automating calculations of complex and myriad tax rates, rules and jurisdictions.

Avalara’s Compliance Cloud will automatically calculate tax for every invoice line item in real-time in the Shopify Plus shopping cart, and merchants can add Avalara’s tax return preparation, filing and remittance services.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Avalara to provide Shopify Plus merchants with an automated way to calculate sales tax,” stated Loren Padelford, general manager of Shopify Plus. “Since Shopify Plus merchants generate high volumes of sales, managing sales taxes can be complex and costly, and this new integration will save them time and money.”

“Ecommerce is real-time, so it just doesn’t make sense to manually manage sales and VAT taxes,” stated Avalara CEO Scott McFarlane. “Avalara’s Compliance Cloud platform provides a fast, easy, and cost-effective way for Shopify Plus merchants to manage tax compliance. We’re excited to welcome Shopify into our community.”
