Avalara and Recurly Partner on Sales Tax Integration
Recurly adds AvaTax to subscription billing platform
Bainbridge Island, WA, and San Francisco, CA–August 12, 2014–Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software that delivers a broad array of compliance solutions related to sales tax and other transactional taxes, today announced Recurly.com, the leading pay-as-you-go subscription billing management platform, has joined Avalara’s community of certified solution partners. Avalara’s solution partners are software publishers that integrate Avalara’s software as a service (SaaS) offering for sales tax management directly into their own applications.
As a result of this partnership, customers can now use Avalara AvaTax™ and Avalara Returns™ from within Recurly’s existing recurring billing platform to automatically calculate the final sales tax amount on every invoice. This eliminates the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions and helps businesses focus on their core offering.
“Managing taxes for subscription-based businesses is very complex, especially for merchants offering products or services with different tax rates or in multiple states,” said Dan Burkhart, CEO and founder of Recurly. “Our integration with Avalara removes this complexity by making sales tax compliance simple and automatic. This partnership is one more example of Recurly’s commitment to providing merchants with world-class resources to grow a successful subscription business.”
Pascal Van Dooren, Chief Revenue Officer at Avalara said, “This partnership allows Avalara to provide its comprehensive solutions to Recurly customers in a fast, easy and cost effective way. In today’s electronic world it just doesn’t make sense to manually manage sales tax. We’re pleased to welcome Recurly into our community.”
