As a modern software company, you need a sales tax platform that can handle the complexities of your business. But the capabilities that matter most aren’t always obvious.
Proactive compliance is key to protecting your company’s hard-earned revenue: Businesses that aren’t compliant can end up paying uncollected sales tax out of pocket, plus penalties and fees. In fact, the average cost of non-compliance for a SaaS company is nearly 5% of revenue.
