Business License Compliance

Licensing your business for operation is generally not a one-time, one-stop activity and, if you are selling online, the number of licenses you’ll need increases because you are selling cross-border.  You can try to maintain current licenses manually but why not automate so you are notified when:

  • licenses need to be renewed
  • a new product or tax jurisdiction is added
  • municipalities update their regulations without notification

An automated business license compliance solution does the research for you and will provide an efficient workflow, custom reports, task management tools, and dynamic calendars to keep you tax compliant.

Pay or Don’t Pay?

If you are in the business of transacting business, you know there are a multitude of laws and regulations you must follow to remain in business or, at the very least, to not pay penalties for non-compliance.  Making sure you pay the right amount of sales tax to the government is an obvious example of when you want to ensure compliance.  

And knowing when you don’t have to collect and pay sales tax is equally important because you have to able to prove retroactively why you didn’t.

Generally speaking, the scenarios where a sale can occur without sales tax being collected are:

  • The buyer, such as a school or non-profit, is deemed tax-exempt by law
  • The buyer is going to re-sell the product to their customer
  • The product being purchased, such as some foods, is tax-exempt by law.

As a seller of products, and also many services, such as landscaping in Texas or accounting in New Mexico, there is a simple way for you to stay on top of sales tax compliance – automate it and avoid:

  • Overpayment
  • Credit rebilling
  • Product delivery delays
