Explore how firms can make sales tax compliance a more profitable service   

As clients’ sales tax compliance needs become more complex in this post-Wayfair, e-commerce-driven, borderless world, many firms are reluctant to offer services that seem potentially labor-intensive. In this session, John Hayashi, Managing Director of Tax at BPM, and Sona Akmakjian, Global Head of Strategic Accounting Partnerships at Avalara, will uncover strategies that can make sales tax compliance a manageable and profitable service even for small firms. Whether you are just considering options or already have a growing compliance practice, you’ll benefit from learning about technology and other options that can benefit your growing practice.
