About Avalara

Avalara helps businesses of all sizes achieve compliance with sales and use, excise, communications, VAT other transactional tax requirements by delivering comprehensive, automated, cloud-based solutions that are fast, accurate, and easy to use. Avalara's Compliance CloudTM platform is designed to effectively manage complicated and burdensome tax compliance obligations imposed by state, local, and other taxing authorities in the United States and internationally.

Avalara offers hundreds of pre-built connectors into leading accounting, ERP, ecommerce and other business applications. The company processes millions of tax transactions for customers and free users every day, files hundreds of thousands of transactional tax returns per year, and manages millions of exemption certificates and other compliance related documents.

A privately held company, Avalara's venture capital investors include Sageview Capital, Battery Ventures, Warburg Pincus, Technology Crossover Ventures, Arthur Ventures, and other institutional and individual investors. Avalara's headquarters are in Seattle, WA and it has offices across the U.S. and in London, England and Pune, India.

As a result of this partnership, communications service providers (CSPs) that use PortaOne's PortaBilling, a customer management, services provisioning and fully converged billing platform can now benefit from Avalara, which automatically calculates applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges for every billing line item, in real-time. Avalara helps reduce the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes for millions of products and services across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and dozens of other international jurisdictions, giving CSPs more time to focus on driving their own business success. In addition, PortaOne customers can add Avalara's tax return preparation, filing, and remittance services.

"We're pleased to partner with Avalara to provide PortaOne customers with a streamlined and accurate way to calculate communications tax," said Roman Khalenkov, Sales and Marketing Director for PortaOne.

We're excited to welcome PortaOne into our community."
