Avalara, Inc. company that offers Sales Tax Management Services utilizing Software as a Service (SaaS) for small to medium enterprises. Avalara was originally named " Advantage Solutions, Inc" by its founders Rory and Patti Rawlings.

History

Avalara, Inc. of Bainbridge Island, WA, was founded in 1999 with the goal to provide a fast, easy and accurate method to calculate sales and use taxes. Avalara’s "suite" of Web-based integrated on-demand sales tax software applications is designed for small and mid-sized companies (SMB’s).

Avalara’s web-hosted sales tax management services include integrations with many accounting software applications including Sage Software - Sage MAS 90, Sage MAS 200, Sage MAS 500, Sage Accpac ERP, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics AX, Epicor Enterprise, Vantage, and CRS products as well as Intuit's Quickbooks and eBay Prostores.

In addition to connectors/integrations, Avalara has software development kits (SDK) available for integration into eCommerce applications such as eBay ProStores.

In 1999, Rory Rawlings and his wife Patti founded Advantage Solutions, Inc. (now called Avalara), which focused on middle tier Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions. Rory discovered numerous clients were faced with extensive sales tax requirements and no affordable and easy to implement solution available to them. Leveraging his previous experience and work, Mr. Rawlings wrote his third North American sales tax calculation engine giving rise the beginning of Avalara, Inc.

On May 5, 2006 the group overseeing implementation of Streamlined Sales Tax Project, now in force in 22 states – named Avalara, as one of just three firms selected to operate as Certified Service Providers for the program.

Avalara, Inc. has grown to approximately 80 employees and has offices in Washington, Louisiana, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, California, Maine, and Texas. Avalara also has offices in India and Canada.

Products

Avalara released AvaTax Connect as its base service. As a web-service-based sales tax management solution, AvaTax Connect runs behind the scenes of many accounting and eCommerce applications to automate the sales tax compliance function for businesses - from jurisdiction research and rate calculation to reporting and returns.
