In 2020, COVID-19 forced many businesses to quickly realign and shift focus to survive—causing changes which likely impacted their sales tax obligations. Whether it was working with fewer resources, switching to a work-from-home environment, or adapting sales models to account for increased e-commerce demand, these changes cemented the need for automation to increase efficiency, especially for sales tax compliance.
All of the transformations that businesses underwent in 2020 made compliance more complicated and time-consuming than ever. So, automating your sales tax can help you meet those challenges by ensuring accuracy in calculations and filing as well as freeing up your teams to focus on higher-value projects. As we transition into 2021, now is the perfect time to assess your tax compliance strategy and set your business up for success.
