We’ve worked with our partners and client companies in the US and Australia to handle US Sales Tax and Australian GST and other tax rates including consolidated tax rates.

Reports are also available upon which you can base your Australian BAS Returns.

Integration with Avalara

We now have a facility to enable our US based customers to check local State and Federal taxes via an US-based portal that’s integrated with franchiseIQ via their API (

When inputting a sales invoice, franchiseIQ sends the customer’s address and the item product code to this API and it returns the correct sales tax rate based on the type of item being sold and the location of the customer in the US.

There are several hundred tax rates used in the US and traditionally this can be a major headache when inputting sales transactions. This information often needs to be maintained offline in spreadsheets etc. Now it’s automated and the tax rate look up takes less than a second! With our software, tax returns needn’t cost you any more valuable time.

Tax Return In Europe

For those companies/sole traders resident in Europe, the VAT return is an essential part of the financial calendar which must, in general, be returned by a specific date on a bi-monthly basis if heavy penalties and interest are to be avoided.

In other countries similar rules apply but the returns may have slightly different time frames or return rules.

In a number of accounting packages the VAT return is simply produced by the system, without any intervention, based on a number of pre-defined rules based on transactions dates, whether or not the company makes its returns on a ‘cash’ or invoice’ basis, etc.

However, franchiseIQ provides a fully interactive VAT return function which allows you a much larger degree of flexibility while still maintaining the integrity of the return itself.

franchiseIQ also lets you ‘save’ the VAT Return at any stage without actually completing it. This allows you to re-open it at any stage and make amendments without losing any of your previous work. This is especially useful if you are dealing with a large number of taxable transactions in any one return.
