As the sales tax compliance and reporting needs of small and medium eCommerce businesses grow, accounting professionals are challenged with providing the required reporting. For accounting professionals who use Xero, that challenge becomes an opportunity with Taxify. Taxify’s extensive sales tax content, powered by Sovos Compliance, a global leader in tax compliance and government reporting software, ensures reliability and accountability in the constantly changing tax environment. Xero’s integration with Taxify’s sales tax compliance solution allows accounting firms to seamlessly offer this valuable service to their clients.
Access to Xero’s Ecosystem
Integration with Xero has opened up Taxify to the large marketplace of accounting and bookkeeping practices. SMB owners are looking for full service from their accounting firms, including sales tax filing. Accounting firms want an easy-to-use, affordable solution.
“One reason we love working with Xero is the breadth and depth of their APIs. Very few accounting platforms give partners the tools they need to create a completely seamless experience for the end-user. That was very appealing to us.”
Eva Krauss, Vice President of Product Management, Sovos Compliance
The integration benefits Taxify by allowing access to this whole new ecosystem and providing a value-added SaaS solution that accounting professionals can offer their clients.
Taxify’s First Xerocon
Taxify prides itself on building personal relationships with its customers. The Taxify team is excited to meet Xero customers and Xero-certified partners at Xerocon 2016, and can’t wait to talk with accounting professionals in-person.
Xero users and potential new customers should plan to visit the Taxify booth and attend the product demo on Wednesday, August 17 at 1:40pm to learn more about Taxify’s integration with Xero. Be sure to grab a cold brew before the demo from Jittery John’s, courtesy of Taxify!
Catching Clouds Offers Added Value
Scott Scharf, Co-Founder and Chief eCommerce Geek of Catching Clouds, was looking for a way to offer clients an automated solution to their sales tax filing needs. With nexus filing implications, Scott needed the ability for his clients to file in all 50 states (and specifically the 17+ Amazon FBA states). Taxify allows Catching Clouds to provide automated sales tax compliance for eCommerce sellers, rounding out its service offerings:
“Taxify’s direct integration with Xero allows any business or Xero partner to use Taxify to import every Xero invoice into Taxify to manage sales tax compliance without any data entry,” said Scott Scharf, co-founder of Catching Clouds, an eCommerce Accounting services company.
“Taxify is a partner to eCommerce businesses and accountants to manage the mechanics of the complex world of sales tax compliance in the 21st Century. They take on this dirty job so you can focus on growing your business. We couldn’t scale our business or deliver as much value to our eCommerce customers without Taxify as a partner.”
Catching Clouds is committed to providing eCommerce accounting services for ecommerce and online businesses, and utilizing Taxify’s integration with Xero supports this mission.
Automated and Uncomplicated
Small business owners face the challenge of staying current with evolving rules and compliance requirements. Accounting professionals and firms that offer Taxify to their existing Xero clients will save their clients time and worry. With the seamless integration, these business owners are relieved of the burden of learning new software. At the same time, their accounting service provider is able to keep all of the transaction history in one easy-to-access location.
Another problem facing multi-channel sellers is the ability to aggregate data across the various sales channels, while keeping their accounting books reconciled and up-to-date automatically. Taxify’s integration of automated sales tax collection and remittance with Xero’s software is a crucial step to achieving compliance while keeping in sync with Xero’s cloud-based tools.
Compliance in all 50 U.S. States
As SMB eCommerce companies grow, the accounting professionals that serve them need to be able to report and file sales tax in all 50 U.S. states. By using Taxify with Xero, accountants are able to comply with sales tax reporting and submit payments for their clients in all 50 U.S. states and local jurisdictions.
Putting the Customer First
Taxify shares Xero’s customer-centric approach to providing highest quality solution at the best value. This common focus on value and customer satisfaction makes Taxify’s integration with Xero a win-win for Xero clients.
