Uni-Data Communications a provider of cloud technology to small and medium-sized businesses has joined hands with Avalara to offer sales tax and compliance automation services in the cloud.
Jay Deubler, vice president of sales at Avalara said, “We recognize the value Uni-Data brings to its clients, and are pleased to augment their offerings with our easy and affordable compliance solution. In today’s electronic world it just doesn't make sense to manually manage sales tax, and we’re convinced all sales and use tax will be automated in the coming years.”
Avalara’s service-based compliance platform for sales tax automation works within a company’s own financial, billing, e-commerce, or point of sale system. This delivers transactional tax compliance services for all types of businesses.
The companies will launch a SMB software portal that will enable Uni-Data’s Skyline cloud services division to deliver software titles for rental and immediate provisioning covering business PCs enabling quick mission-critical decisions.
Skyline Cloud Services was created by Uni-Data with a mandate to support the evolving needs of small business with turnkey, immediate and scalable cloud-based software solutions that integrate the latest technology innovations with exceptional back-end infrastructure and support.
Customers using Quickbooks on Uni-Data’s hosting services can also use AvaTax, Avalara’s cloud-based solution now and can automatically calculate sales taxes accruing with each invoice. This capability is expected to help customers skip complex tasks of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions and instead focus on their core competencies, said officials.
Bob Babcock, Vice President of Skyline Services by Uni-Data said, “We’re always focused on helping our clients manage their businesses more efficiently. Our partnership with Avalara will enable our portal users to easily manage and remain up-to-date on increasingly complicated tax regulations.”
