Infor M3 Webinar: Consumer Use Tax 101: What's all the fuss about for manufacturers and distributors?

Frank Petrasio 0 723 Article rating: 5.0

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.

Date/Time: Wednesday, October 14th 10:00 a.m. CDT / 11:00 a.m. EDT
Topic: Consumer Use Tax 101: What's all the fuss about for manufacturers and distributors?

Your business makes a purchase and you notice the seller doesn’t collect sales tax. So it must be tax free, right? Wrong. Consumer use tax may still apply, and if you’re not actively tracking use tax obligations, you could be making a costly mistake.

Put simply, use tax is owed on a purchase when the seller does not collect sales tax, or when the use of the product/service (or the location of consumption) results in more tax being owed. Sound complicated? It is, and that’s what makes use tax one of the most mismanaged compliance issues for businesses.

We brought in our partners at Avalara to dive in. For this session, learn more about consumer use tax, what it is, and when your business may be on the hook to pay it.

  • The events that can trigger consumer use tax requirements
  • The most common consumer use tax management challenges
  • The impact of economic nexus laws on consumer use tax
  • How your business can step up compliance to avoid being audited


This will be one ‘use-ful’ webinar that you won’t want to miss!

George Moroses 0 1019 Article rating: 5.0

In August, BISCO, Inc. based in IL went live on their new IBMi 9 with Infor LX. This project included a dual migration from IBMi 7 to IBMi 9 and an upgrade from LX 8.3.4 to LX 8.3.5 using webtop. The Crossroads team led by Tim Baker, made this all happen in just a little over a month. BISCO will immediately move into the next phase of the project which will focus on an implementation of the Avalara Tax Interface to LX.

As stated by BISCO’s Senior Manager of Information Technology, “I want to express our complete gratitude for what a great job Crossroads RMC did in helping us get our BPCS LX Upgrade up and running. We were struggling to get over that hump and just couldn’t seem to bring this ERP to life… Crossroads RMC came in and saved the day, a fantastic job and the effort put forth was 2nd to none. Big Shout out to Tim Baker!!  I would highly recommend Crossroads RMC to any company.

Tips:  LX / BPCS / M3

I recently came across an article from CIO Magazine that talked about the various ways that your ERP system could be hurting your business. The single most important item on that list referenced ERP systems that weren’t integrated with other systems that housed mission-critical business data.

Having data in two (or more) systems that don’t talk to one another is like baking a pizza crust in one oven and the toppings in another. Once baked, you may have some good food to snack on, but it sure isn’t pizza! Pizza requires the cheese and sauce and spices to bake with the crust. One takes on the flavor of the other and when you take a bite, you get a complete representation of the flavors.   

That’s the value of an integrated ERP system. When you take a bite, you get a complete representation of the flavors…meaning, you get one version of the truth. Everything comes together to allow you to analyze critical business data in an efficient way with no disconnects.

Crossroads consultants have spent years developing integration expertise to tie countless different systems to Infor ERPs.

Here are some examples…
