After Wayfair, Sales Tax Automation and Administration take center stage.

State and local sales/use tax laws are complicated. Currently, 45 states impose such taxes. Add in local jurisdictions and that number can be in the thousands. Following recent legislation, it’s easier than ever for companies to be subject to sales tax collection, especially within e-commerce and digital services. Many state and local authorities actively conduct sales/use tax audits of out-of-state businesses to recover lost revenue from in-state buyers.
These sales and use tax challenges are further exacerbated by new economic nexus rules established as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court case South Dakota v. Wayfair. Post-Wayfair, businesses must understand their sales tax exposure, mitigate risk and past exposure, and establish processes and systems to ensure ongoing compliance. BDO understands the impacts of Wayfair and has the resources and experience to help companies achieve compliance.
Wayfair is only one example of the increased need for tax automation, as regulatory requirements and business systems continue to evolve in volume and complexity. BDO provides Indirect Tax Automation services to help businesses automate and optimize their sales and use tax processes. Our services are focused on tax compliance reporting efforts and are designed to reduce costs by increasing efficiencies.
