Share Article

ISSI is demonstrating the tangible impact from TEAMS Express on use tax exemption handling within Accounts Payable at the 2009 International Accounts Payable Professionals Annual Forum. TEAMS Express software for use tax and sales tax exemption management provides an automated framework for controlling the issuance and management of use tax exemption certificates. Resource strapped companies can achieve greater management control over their use tax exposure and risk, limit use tax accruals, share valuable tax expertise with A/P when they need it and properly defend state use tax audits by using TEAMS Express.

TEAMS Express software from ISSI limits use tax accruals, reduces state use tax audit assessments, enhances management control and transparency over use tax handling while sharing valuable tax expertise with A/P when they need it. Philip C. Hodge, Founder and CEO, and David M. Muchewicz, CPA with MCE SALT Solutions, LLP are speaking on how manufacturers and distributors are saving time, money and staffing at the 2009 International Accounts Payable Professionals Annual Forum by optimizing their approach towards use tax exemptions through software. Imaging Science and Services, Inc. (ISSI),, is highlighting the tangible risk reduction, control and impact when using TEAMS Express for use tax exemption management at the show.

TEAMS Express simplifies the use tax exemption process by documenting each use tax-exempt transaction as it occurs with a simple and secure web-based tool. TEAMS Express ensures that a complete and correct use tax exemption certificate is prepared and presented to the vendor by A/P or procurement. This electronic record streamlines the monthly or quarterly use tax accrual process as it provides complete documentation for all of the details of the transaction and its eligibility for use tax exemption.

The TEAMS Express workflow is flexible and can include optional review by management or the tax department before the transaction is completed. Consequently, taxability decisions can be made appropriately and consistently without overburdening A/P or the tax department. Management has complete visibility and control over the process. The automated framework also provides transparency that can support SOX compliance for publicly traded companies.
Lastly, TEAMS Express for use tax provides the first line of defense when preparing for and defending state use tax audits.
