How Does Vertex Work with QuickBooks Desktop?
Vertex SMB works with QuickBooks using a connector. The connector can be installed on the machine on which QuickBooks Desktop is installed, and the configuration can be set up by following the steps to link Vertex SMB with QuickBooks. Once Vertex SMB is integrated with QuickBooks, users will have web-based access for sales tax calculations. These calculations include factors such as customer address verifications, and transaction details such as estimates, invoices, sales orders, and receipts, invoices, credit memos and refunds, and other information.
Additionally, the Vertex SMB solution allows users to generate signature-ready PDFs using data from QuickBooks while creating invoices after adding various taxes based on different locations and jurisdictions. Businesses can use the data in their QuickBooks company files print, sign and file, or allow Vertex SMB to file and submit payment on their behalf. With these features, businesses will not have to keep their tax rates up-to-date manually or maintain a myriad of tax codes, as the entire process is automated.
