Magento is the preferred e-commerce platform for business growth. Many businesses also use Avalara’s portfolio of tax solutions for accounting. Avalera provides comprehensive sales and use tax compliance, fully managed returns filing, document administration and state tax filing for e-commerce. Magento provides everything businesses need to manage their online store while Avalera supplies what they need to manage their finances. Integrating the two utilizes Avalara’s financial tools and Magento’s insight at the transaction level.
Integrating your e-commerce store with your accounting software helps in these ways:
- Integration helps your business handle taxes faster. As soon as the customer begins checkout, Avalara makes real-time tax calculations at the time of the transaction through a secure internet connection. Processes happen seamlessly for each line-item generated in Magento without disrupting the user experience or your workflow.
