BillTrust, a leading innovator in A/R automation, has announced that the company has enhanced its industry-leading B2B order-to-cash suite by integrating Avalara’s CertCapture software into the Billtrust platform.

When a transaction occurs, businesses are required to either calculate and collect sales tax or, if the purchase is tax-exempt, collect and validate the buyer’s exemption status. With many suppliers selling to tax-exempt buyers, use time-consuming manual processes to manage exemption certificates. The new partnership is expected to enable Billtrust customers to benefit from an automated process to collect, store, validate, and manage sales tax exemption certificates, eliminating manual work, and creating a streamlined customer experience.

“Many businesses manually manage exemption certificates which can lead to audit and compliance issues. For companies selling to tax-exempt buyers, Billtrust’s integration with Avalara CertCapture provides easy access to compliance documents, ensuring proper credit account setup. This partnership gives our customers more value while helping them maximize their automation investment. It also demonstrates our commitment to partnering with high value companies to create the broadest number of seamless fintech ecosystem integrations,” said Steve Pinado, Billtrust President.

Avalara’s CertCapture software automatically omit tax from exempt sales and enables to manage exemption documentation from the cloud. With buyers required to enter information, the CertCapture integration creates one centralized exemption certificate management solution, helping bridge the gap between tax, treasury, credit, eCommerce, IT, shared services, and operations to improve audit preparedness and drive compliance. It also serves as an audit management platform by storing all exemption certificates in one place.

“Billtrust customers will now benefit from control over sales tax exemption certificate management within their already-familiar platform. CertCapture scales to fit business needs, and it’s a quick and easy way to manage the exemption certificate process and be prepared for audits, long before they occur,” said Silvia Aguirre, CertCapture co-founder and VP, Certificate Management at Avalara.

Founded in 2001, Billtrust makes it easier for B2B companies to get paid. The firm is transforming B2B payments and the order-to-cash cycle for world’s largest brands.
