Failure to generate desired outcomes.

Dealing with this company was an exercise in irritation because of the many changes in representatives, the poor communication, the false information, and the unanswered questions. Throughout the entire process, I felt like I was on my own, left to fend for myself. They didn't only fail to find solutions, they made things worse! Save time and money for yourself.

  • None.
  • Frequent representative changes, Inaccurate information, time and money waste.

An okay tax solution

The pain of complying with sales tax is eliminated by Avalara. Avalara connects effortlessly and even makes registration recommendations based on sales, saving us the hours of laborious manual rate updates. My workflow has greatly improved. But a small complication was added with the most recent website upgrade. Convenient keyboard shortcuts have been replaced by awkward mouse-and-keyboard combos, making it take longer to enter customer details and exemption certificates. Moreover, client information reports are not Excel-friendly, which requires manual copying and may result in updates being missed.

  • Accurate, time Saving, automates sales tax compliance.
  • Website update less efficient, incompatible report file format.
