Avalara’s unique cloud integration with Coupa can automate all of the work required and address pain points of manually loading tax rates into Coupa or with manual exceptions during invoice processing which require costly staff review. With a standardized, Coupa-certified integration, the Avalara Coupa integration provides businesses functionality to assess, validate and accrue the sales & use tax on the Coupa invoice provided by the supplier.
The Avalara integration allows you to:
Call Avalara AvaTax to independently calculate use tax during invoice processing.
Record the total AvaTax tax amount in Coupa providing a comparison of vendor-charged sales tax and the AvaTax amount.
Flag invoice in Coupa for further review if the vendor-charged tax amount is different when compared to the AvaTax amount.
Apply line level tax amount returned from Avalara, in addition to other tax content, onto outbound file sent to ERP.
Record the Coupa invoice within AvaTax for use in a suite of tax reports, and made available for Avalara Returns filings and remittance services.
