Avalara Certcapture: Avalara CertCapture is a scalable solution that securely collects, stores, and manages tax documents like exemption certificates, W-8s, and W-9s, in the cloud — for quick access to all your documentation whenever you need it.
Our tools lift the burden of sales tax compliance off your teams, so they can focus on growing your business.
Unlike sales tax, use tax can be triggered after a transaction, based on how and where products are used by the buyer. Managing use tax manually is labor-intensive and prone to error. Automation provides a better, smarter way than maintaining complicated spreadsheets or creating expensive custom solutions.
Sage Sales Tax, powered by Avalara, is one of the only tax compliance solutions that integrates directly with Sage ERP software. It lets you calculate rates, prepare returns, manage exemption certificates, and more, right from your own ERP.
