Core dna Certified for Avalara's Sales Tax Automation Solution

Bainbridge Island, WA – February 18, 2016 – Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software delivering compliance solutions related to sales tax, VAT and other transactional taxes, today announced Core dna, an Australian-based digital platform that recently expanded to the US, has joined Avalara’s community of certified solution partners. Avalara’s solution partners are software publishers that integrate Avalara’s software as a service (SaaS) offering for sales tax management directly into their own applications.

As a result of this partnership, Core dna’s customers now have access to AvaTax™, Avalara’s cloud-based solution, to automatically calculate the final sales tax amount on every invoice. This eliminates the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions and helps businesses focus on their core offering.

“AvaTax will make the complexity of tax calculation simple,” said Teguh Wijaya, System Architect for Core dna. “It will allow the Core dna Digital Experience Platform  to make calculations, exemptions, and handle reporting in compliance with the latest tax rulings and regulations all over the US and Canada.”

Pascal Van Dooren, Chief Revenue Officer at Avalara said, “This partnership allows Avalara to provide its comprehensive solutions to Core dna customers in a fast, easy and cost effective way. In today’s electronic world it just doesn’t make sense to manually manage sales tax. We’re pleased to welcome Core dna into our community.”
