It’s been said that nothing motivates accountants more than legislation and, more specifically, the need to comply. Nothing is more clear about this statement than what we’ve seen, and will see, in sales tax.
Attending a conference like Avalara Crush, you get a distinct feeling they have been ahead of the curve when it comes to helping businesses comply with the ever-changing world of sales tax. Moreover, it is not going to get easier to do so here, or around the world.
