Modern Tax Automation For Unified Retail: Teamwork + Avalara
The Tax Barrier
Taxation has become increasingly more complex over the past few years. Market intelligence provider International Data Company (IDC) notes that technology providers are moving to provide solutions and leveraging the latest developments to simplify the tax process. AI is already being leveraged to automatically calculate taxation at the point of purchase across the U.S as well as easing the process for tax professionals to forecast and conduct risk analysis around tax issues.
Big data & analytics tools are also being used across the industry to provide professionals with insights and offer opportunities to optimize the tax decision process. IDC notes that big data and analytics will be a must have for tax software end users. Combining an existing tax software with deep dive analytics & a range of information around customer purchases.
The cloud will also be integral to tax trends in 2020, while tax compliance has been outpaced by other developments in cloud computing, IDC expects cloud tax software to be a critical part of business operations in the years to come. With current industry events, and the work of retailers to continue to pivot their business, brands need to be prepared for these changes by proactively investing in effective taxation solutions and utilizing a range of technologies at the point of purchase.
