Executive Summary & Pricing

ONESOURCE Indirect Tax, Sales & Use Managed Services is designed for small to mid-sized and larger enterprises with significant sales tax liability exposure across a large number of jurisdictions. By integrating with the business’ accounting systems to automate lookup and application of appropriate taxes and rules, the system provides greater accuracy than manual application. Likewise, the outsourcing of compliance functions, including filing and payment to all jurisdictions, reduces tedious and penalty prone processes for the business. System pricing depends on annual transaction volume, number of returns per month and number of legal entities, and generally starts around $10,000. ONESOURCE Indirect Tax also offers a Managed Services Tax Pack where clients get tax determination, compliance and returns, and expert consulting services all for one bundled price.
