Moving to the Cloud – Dynamics GP and Sales Tax Compliance

Email | Print

In our last post we discussed how Microsoft Dynamics GP, in conjunction with CCH's Sales Tax Solutions, can help organizations that face complex sales tax calculations.  Today we want to focus in a bit more on utilizing these solutions in the cloud.

There are many reasons why an organization would want to move from a premise-based software solution to a hosted system.  Both Dynamics GP and CCH provide hosted applications to help companies gain efficiency.  How is that you might ask?

  • By reducing capital expenditures such as server and storage and reducing the time needed for installation and maintenance of local infrastructure.
  • By maximizing scalability, giving your organization the flexibility it needs to help manage growth and operational change.
  • By providing anywhere, anytime access to the systems through secure, encrypted means of connectivity.
  • By constantly updating tax rates for state, county, city, and special district sales tax and applying the most current accurate information to all transactions regardless of location.
  • By providing audit protection, enabling your organization to identify the precise taxes applied to individual items.
That being said, the cloud isn't for everybody.  That's why we continue to provide the option of deploying these solutions locally on customer-owned hardware.  However, for clients that are ready to leverage the cloud to help grow their business, Dynamics GP proves to be a very powerful asset and tool.  If you're interested in learning more about cloud technologies and the options of deployment for Dynamics GP, please contact us at
