Avalara announced yesterday that their Sales Tax for MAS 500 (aka Sage Sales Tax) now has the code embedded into the MAS 500 version 7.3 release.
Sales tax processing embedded in MAS 500 allows for the user to receive accurate tax computations on each order that’s processed through the system. The monthly or quarterly sales tax returns can also be processed for any state – with resulting forms transmitted to the appropriate state.
Sales tax processing is the type of procedure that most companies take for granted — until challenged on an audit. With states increasingly under pressure to raise revenues it’s increasingly likely that more audit resources will be deployed to verify that companies are charging and collecting proper amounts of sales tax.
According to Sage,
Sage MAS 500 and Sage Sales Tax developers worked together and added code (hooks) specifically for Sage Sales Tax in the base MAS 500 code for 7.3. This was done so users who installed Sage Sales Tax for MAS 500 7.3 would not have to obtain updates from Avalara each time MAS 500 released a Monthly Update.
Avalara (www.avalara.com), the leading provider of Web-based sales tax automation and compliance solutions, announced today that Sage Sales Tax, Powered by AvaTax™, is now embedded within the code base of Sage MAS 500, beginning with version 7.3. Sage’s award winning research and development team led the integration effort to address significant customer demand and to enhance customer experience.
