Webcast Summary

Benjamin Franklin's adage that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is particularly apt for finance leaders who aim to mitigate risks of audits and penalties resulting from insufficient attention to sales and use tax rules. But for many finance leaders, the greatest difficulties with complying with these rules arise not only from the number of states and jurisdictions in which their companies conduct business, but also whether their companies establish a "sufficient physical presence," or nexus, among these locations.

As states and jurisdictions expand their definitions of nexus, finance teams may not necessarily possess the knowledge or resources they need to accurately calculate their companies' sales and use tax obligations. At the same time, finance teams cannot afford to allow audits to emerge as the cost of doing business, especially if they can prevent these audits in the first place, as well as prepare their companies in case of audits.

During this Webcast, we will discuss:

  • Why finance teams are likely to experience greater challenges than ever with complying with sales and use tax rules;
  • How finance teams can apply automation to improve compliance and reduce risks of audits when determining sales and use tax obligations; and
  • Best practices for responding quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively if your company has to undergo an audit.
