Managing the finances of a small business can be a challenge for a lot of reasons. Most owners don’t start a business with a finance background and struggle with managing their finances. But the one area that is the most frustrating is managing the sales tax return process.
Most businesses are required to charge sales tax for the goods and services they sell. The then need to report and remit theses taxes to the jurisdiction where the goods/services were delivered. Where the challenges come to play is tracking, reporting and filing the sales tax. While this isn’t so bad in states like Connecticut and Massachusetts because they have one rate throughout the state. But in New York, you must file by county and if you operate in multiple states, it’s simply a headache that most business owners would rather avoid.
