NetSuite SuiteTax and Sovos – Tax Compliance after 19.1

The digital transformation of tax around the globe is putting enormous pressure on NetSuite-driven businesses large and small looking to confidently expand into new markets, launch new products and services and adapt as global regulatory compliance demands become more complex and real-time.

This new business complexity puts an additional onus on tax and IT teams, who do not have real-time access to updated sales tax and VAT data, to constantly update tax rate and rules changes (i.e. through rate files or manual updates), increasing audit risk and opening the company up to additional audits and fines.

NetSuite OneWorld and SuiteTax with Sovos S1

A powerful component of NetSuite OneWorld 16, SuiteTax centralizes all tax functions within the NetSuite modules. NetSuite has been making enhancements to the NetSuite SuiteTax engine to support the most complicated international tax jurisdictions around the globe, and Sovos has successfully transitioned a client from legacy NetSuite tax using the new SuiteTax API layer.

While NetSuite centralizes finances, the Sovos S1 platform has been protecting NetSuite users by centralizing compliance in the cloud and providing updated sales tax and VAT rates and rules without disrupting ERP functions.    

“With our migration over to NetSuite and the recent Wayfair ruling, Frontstream was in search of a robust tax calculation integration within SuiteTax. When reviewing the competition, we chose Sovos due to the knowledgeable sales process, competitive pricing and overall confidence instilled in Sovos’ expertise. Throughout our relatively quick implementation, the support team was extremely responsive and courteous and as we continue our relationship, we are confident Sovos is the partner that can help us address our tax compliance needs.”  – Steve Collin, Controller, Frontstream
