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

Sales and use tax laws are complicated. Currently 45 states and thousands of local jurisdictions impose such taxes, many with conflicting positions about which of them has regulatory authority and how much is owed. 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 challenges are further exacerbated by new economic nexus rules resulting from the U.S. Supreme Court case South Dakota v. Wayfair, especially for e-commerce and digital services companies. Post-Wayfair, businesses must understand their sales tax exposure, mitigate risk and past exposure, and establish processes and systems to ensure ongoing compliance.
BDO’s Indirect Tax Automation services help businesses automate and optimize their sales/use tax processes by integrating the ERP/ecommerce system with third party tax software. As with all BDO tax transformation services, the goal is to minimize risk and reduce costs by increasing efficiencies.
Our nationwide network of sales/use tax professionals draw on a range of backgrounds and work experience beyond public accounting. Many are former sales and use tax auditors from state tax departments or have worked in some of the largest multi-state tax departments in America.
