Alpha Payments Cloud adds sales tax automation software
Dublin, IE and Bainbridge Island, WA-- Alpha Payments Cloud, providers of the omniCommerce platform AlphaHub, and Avalara, Inc., a provider of cloud-based transactional tax compliance solutions, today announced a partnership that will bring simple, affordable sales tax management solutions to AlphaHub customers, including acquirers, merchants, and product providers.
As a result of this partnership, AlphaHub users will now have access to AvaTax™, Avalara’s sales tax automation capabilities, through their existing AlphaHub integration. Avalara’s service allows businesses of all sizes to stay current with constantly changing rates and rules across more than 12,000 tax jurisdictions in the U.S. and instantaneously delivers the right rate during the checkout process.
AlphaHub will streamline the process of calculating taxes for merchants across multiple jurisdictions and will offer extra functionality for AlphaHub customers looking to eliminate the tedious and complex nature of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions.
“For merchants considering expanding out of their home geographies, sales tax, or its international equivalents such as VAT or GST, is of great concern,” comments Rónán Gallagher, head of product for Alpha Payments Cloud. “Our integration with Avatax reduces uncertainty for merchants expanding into new markets and increases confidence that they are compliant with indirect tax considerations.”
“Managing tax on a global scale can be complicated but Avalara’s integration with Alpha Payments Cloud lets merchants quickly and easily access our compliance solutions in the cloud, making trading easier,” commented Kevin Boland, VP business development EMEA for Avalara. “Our partnership helps eliminate the complexities of calculating, filing and reporting taxes. Managing tax in a one-stop solution such as the Alpha Payments Cloud platform, alongside payment processing and fraud prevention, not only fits in with our ethos but also brings our powerful tax automation technology to a large global merchant base.”
