Strategic Partnership Allows Implico and SAP Customers to Automate Their Fuel Tax Determination Process

Implico-Avalara-Partnership.jpgAvalara, 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 that Implico Group, a leading global provider of intelligent IT solutions for the Oil & Gas downstream industry for SAP systems, 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 indirect tax management directly into their own applications.

As a result of this partnership, Implico and SAP customers now have access to Avalara AvaTax Excise™, Avalara’s cloud-based solution to automatically calculate the final sales and excise tax amounts on every fuel invoice. This eliminates the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions and helps businesses focus on their core offering.

“We’re always focused on helping our SAP clients manage their businesses more efficiently,” said Thomas Weggelaar, CEO of Implico. “Our integration with Avalara will allow SAP users to easily manage and remain up-to-date on increasingly complicated tax regulations.”

Pascal Van Dooren, Chief Revenue Officer at Avalara, said, “This partnership allows Avalara to provide its comprehensive solutions, including AvaTax Excise, to SAP customers in a fast, easy and cost effective way. In today’s electronic world it just doesn’t make sense to manually manage indirect taxes. We’re pleased to welcome Implico into our community.”

Avalara pioneered a web-based compliance platform for sales tax automation more than a decade ago and now provides an end-to-end suite of transactional tax compliance services for businesses of all sizes. Today its SaaS solution integrates into numerous ERP systems, accounting packages, ecommerce shopping carts, Point of Sale systems, and mobile payment platforms.

As part of Avalara’s excise tax solution suite, AvaTax Excise identifies and calculates indirect taxes for fuel transactions with built-in support for all major jurisdictions in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. AvaTax Excise enables companies of all sizes to quickly calculate excise taxes to enable accurate invoicing, accruals, and reconciliation of energy-related indirect taxes.
