Not only is the volume challenging, but the amount of jurisdictions tax leaders need to deal with is alarming. Each State, City or Town has a different set of hurdles before you are granted your business license.
Did your opening get held up because the business licensing process was not started earlier enough to be final upon opening? Our team can have everything ready to go in advance to minimize delays.
Business licensing is an administrative nightmare for multi-location companies.
New openings require attention at each level of government to ensure 100% compliance. Should your location be under construction or improvement, discussion with the construction team is needed to ensure timing of licensing. Retail Tax Solutions becomes part of your team so you don’t have to worry about being a go between. We copy you on all emails so that you can keep an eye on the process, without investing unneeded time.
With varying deadlines, forms/return types, and varying jurisdictions to deal with, non-compliance of any single location culminates with penalties or shut-downs. Licenses often go unrenewed or paid late when there is turnover in a corporation, or when other priorities must be given attention. Retail Tax Solutions becomes that employee who never quits or is sick, or inadvertently does not have enough time to address a renewal.
Each new license and renewal requires payment. Internally, this means payment approvals and account payable delays and lost paperwork. Typical accounts payable are not set up to process and mail out required documentation for renewals or new licenses. Check payment requests delay the processing of new licenses and timely renewals. Retail Tax Solutions sets up Escrow Accounts for each client and as soon as a new license application or renewal needs payment, it gets paid.
