ADP ®, a leading provider of human resource, payroll, and benefits administration services, today announced it has expanded its existing sales and use tax calculation and outsourced returns filing services to accommodate businesses that are just looking for outsourced returns. With the ADP Sales and Use Tax Outsourced Returns Solution, businesses can maintain their existing sales and use tax configuration, tax calculation and tax collection processes while reducing the burden associated with monthly tax filing. Businesses can transmit data files from any of their existing accounting systems, and ADP will prepare and file tax returns and securely remit funds to more than 13,000 state and local governments nationwide.
“With demand for outsourced returns accelerating and the complexity of the tax compliance process increasing, businesses are turning to ADP sales and use tax solutions more than ever before. ADP’s reputation and 30-year experience in this market can help these companies comply with multiple sales tax regulations across the United States,” said Bob Levis, Division Vice President and General Manager of ADP’s Sales, Use and Value-Added Tax business.
This offering allows ADP to take the majority of the burden off the business while performing automation of the sales tax filing process, reducing operating risk and compliance costs. ADP studies show that mid-size companies that manage sales and use tax in house spend on average $81,000 each year on penalties and interest, while businesses that outsource sales and use tax returns only pay on average $45,000 annually in penalties and interest.
“With its Sales and Use Tax Outsourced Returns Solution, ADP has simplified the sales tax process for our organization,” said Marty Sperry, Corporate Controller at New Sunshine. “Its efficient tax filing and payments services as well as vital back-end support, allow us to focus our internal resources on value-added activities, and we appreciate the security that the process automation provides.”
