Avalara (http://www.Avalara.com), a leading provider of sales tax and compliance automation services in the cloud, today announced the formation of a new strategic partnership with Moore Stephens North American Region (MSNA).

This new strategic partnership will enable MSNA member firms to access Avalara’s online Accountants Resource Center (ARC) that provides business-critical sales and use tax (SUT), value-added tax (VAT) information and related resources to better meet the member firm clients’ needs.
