Simplify taxes with Genius ERP: Genius Solutions Partners with Avalara to Automate Tax Compliance

Genius ERP: ready out-of-the-box for custom manufacturing.

Genius Solutions is excited to announce our new partnership with Avalara

Avalara is an automated tax service, that will provide best-in-class tax and compliance solutions to our customers that operate or sell products in the United States.


Keeping up with ever changing tax rates, rules and compliance issues can be a major hassle for manufacturers, especially those that do business in multiple states. That is why Genius Solutions has partnered with Avalara, a leading provider of tax compliance automation software for businesses of all sizes, to offer AvaTax to its customers.


As a result of this partnership, Genius Solutions’ customers can now choose Avalara’s AvaTax to deliver sales and use tax calculations within existing business applications at the time of checkout or billing—in real time. Custom manufacturers will now be able to automatically create invoices with the correct taxation rates, as well as file all sales tax documentation with ease: Avalara will tally what you owe in the jurisdictions you designate, prepare and file your returns, and remit payments for you.


“Managing taxes in multiple jurisdictions can be a nightmare for custom manufacturers—calculating taxes correctly, as well as keeping on top of changing rates and compliance regulations—is complicated and cumbersome, and takes up too much administrative time. With Avalara, the entire sales tax process will be handled automatically, and our customers will barely have to lift a finger to create invoices, as well as file tax returns,” says Dominic Vezina, General Manager of Genius Solutions. “Avalara will seamlessly integrate with Genius ERP, making it much easier for our customers to manage the complexities of taxation and compliance in the United States,” adds Vezina.


Avalara operates on a cloud-based SAAS model, providing a seamless and effective way for our customers to manage sales tax and compliance issues, ensuring that custom manufacturers are on top of the latest tax rates, rules and regulations, and always have accurate sales tax calculations.

Some of the major benefits of Avalara are:


1. Improved accuracy:

Your customers don’t like paying the wrong amount of tax, and now with Avalara’s AvaTax you can ensure they don’t—and improve accuracy, by automating your sales tax calculations. And remember, you don’t just run the risk of customers noticing your rates are wrong: auditors may too. Automation helps minimize the errors that result from manual taxation processes, keeping both customers and auditors happy.


2. On-demand calculations:

Avalara’s AvaTax delivers real-time rates directly into your invoicing system at the moment of purchase, ensuring that you always charge the correct rates for the correct jurisdiction. Sales tax calculations are completely automated and up-to-date, taking the onus of tax calculations off of you.


3. Manage growth:

As your business grows, and your product offering changes or geographical reach expands, so does tax complexity. Avalara’s AvaTax supports growth with calculations in 12,000+ U.S. sales and use tax jurisdictions and beyond.


4. Easy reporting and filing:

Quickly export your transaction data for filing, or let AvaTax and Avalara Returns work in tandem to prepare your returns and remit payments, making certain your returns and remittances are correct.


Greg Chapman, senior vice president of partner management at Avalara said, “Genius Solutions understands the needs of its customers, and Avalara’s AvaTax reduces complexity for their customer’s business in many ways. We understand that digitization of business processes is not an option, it is essential; we are proud to offer fast, accurate, and easy tax compliance solutions to our shared customers.”


Genius Solutions is now an Avalara Certified integration partner. Certified partners pass a series of criteria developed by Avalara to ensure the connector’s performance and reliability, thereby helping mutual customers benefit from a seamless experience with Avalara’s tax compliance solutions.
