Black Friday & Cyber Monday: Staying sales tax compliant

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are fast becoming a tradition for many European consumers and European businesses alike, as they respond to spikes in e-commerce orders coming from US consumers. Whilst an increase in revenue is certainly good, many businesses overlook U.S. sales tax and put their business at risk of audit from the U.S. tax authorities.

Jake Estes of Avalara will discuss key elements to consider when selling into the US:

  • Economic nexus
  • Amazon laws
  • Customs duties and fees
  • Ways to ensure your business is compliant
