Tax engines like Avalara are designed to work with the most popular financial applications, seamlessly determining the correct rate and calculating behind the scenes. Operating as an integral part of your existing financial or accounting system, tax engines automatically calculate taxes for sales, purchases and rentals. Using these tax engines reduces time spent on tax compliance, improves accuracy and lowers risk. The internal controls offered by these tax engines are a critical component of Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 compliance.

SmartERP professionals are experienced software developers with extensive knowledge of the tax systems as well as most ERP, eCommerce and financial accounting systems. SmartERP has developed pre-built interface programs used by tax engines for Oracle EBS, PeopleSoft and JD Edwards applications.

Service Offerings

Implementation Services:

This is the complete life cycle engagement. We do everything for the client, from setup, integration, customization and project management–everything needed to get the system working in the customer environment. These engagements typically run from 2 to 6 months, depending on the client’s needs.

Project Management:

Often, customers may just want to tap into our deep experience to identify needs and develop a plan that they themselves can execute.

Integration Services:

These services involve integrating tax systems with a client’s ERP or financial system, using off-the-shelf adaptors.

Custom Adaptor Development:

When an off-the-shelf adaptor does not yet exist, clients often engage us to build one for them. This ensures seamless connectivity and data exchange between tax systems and the client’s ERP or financial system.
