2 Tips for Handling Voter Approved California Proposition 30 With Your ERP Software

Email | Print

California State taxpayers approved Proposition 30, so the Sales & Use Tax Rate increase of .25%, will go into effect January 1, 2013.  This increase will be applicable for a few years.  Additionally, some cities and counties also approved other district taxes which will go into effect April 1, 2013.

How can you lessen the effects of increased taxes on your company?

  1. If you have California invoices from vendors that are due after 1/1/13, pay them THIS YEAR (prior to 12/31/12) to avoid the additional tax monies.  Just set the due date on those invoices so your payments are processed before the new year.
  2. Have your system automatically stay current with changing tax details.  If you use Avalara’s AvaTax module within your Microsoft Dynamics GP system, it’s easily handled – no complications.  If you don’t have this module, perhaps you should request a demo thru Collins Computing.  Our customers also use Avalara’s web-based tax calculator AvaRates Now to quickly double check a tax rate for a specific address (50 lookups for free).

With taxes all over the country phasing in and out on different dates, save yourself the headaches of manually manipulating the tax detail records in Microsoft Dynamics GP. Since this specific tax increase is effective for three years starting in January, while others start in April…how much easier is it to handle with a product like AvaTax and Microsoft Dynamics GP?
