Communications services may be at the core of your business, or these services may be merely part of a broader portfolio of offerings. Companies who previously didn’t consider themselves communications providers – like Netflix, Microsoft, and Google – may now need to manage the complex communications taxability of data streaming.
In either case, you face continuous change—from new services and technologies to shifts in regional coverage following mergers or expansions. Rules and rates for communications taxes, surcharges, and fees are also in constant flux. All these variables affect the detailed bills you must submit to customers every month.
Vertex arms communications service providers with a robust communications tax calculation engine, powerful location utility, and seamless integration with major billing and ERP systems—making it simpler and easier to navigate the complexities and avoid compliance risks around communications taxes, surcharges, and fees.
