Top Tax Tips and Concerns for Manufacturers


Do you know what the impact of new sales tax legislation is on your manufacturing business? It may be greater than you think. 
If you sell products or services exempt from sales tax, your compliance challenges and audit risk can be complex and burdensome. For each non-taxable sale, you must associate a tax exemption certificate (or more than one, in some cases) proving tax is not owed. But gathering and managing these documents while understanding your obligations quickly becomes overwhelming.

The pandemic affected manufacturers especially hard with disruptions in the global supply chain and shipping delays. Many manufacturers turned to online sales, selling direct to consumers, and even creating new products to survive in the new normal. These actions have sales tax implications that can drastically change the way manufacturers manage compliance for years to come.

Avalara will dive into tax tips specific to manufacturers to help your business stay on top of its tax compliance A-game. In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Why manufacturers may be on the hook to collect sales tax if they sell online
  • How to approach eCommerce when selling tax-exempt goods
  • Tips to effectively manage and organize exemption documents to avoid audit penalties
  • Why your business must actively manage consumer use tax in addition to sales tax exemptions
