Fantastic Avalara EMEA Support experience

I have been recently liaising more frequently with the Avalara EMEA Support team for a few tehcnical points. I have to say the response time have been fantastic. The tickets are all dealt with in a timely manner and there is a dedicated technician always assgined who usually have a 1-1 with you to ensure your ticket has been resolved! --Rest assured , we feel very confident.. the EMEA support team have been extremly reliable and on time especially for urgent queries (for complex and challenging supply chains like ours!)

Good solution, difficult communication

As amazon seller I have used Amazon VAT Services provided by AVALARA. The VAT registration process in four countries and the VAT filings went smooth and without any major hickups. When I stopped selling and requested the deregistration of the VAT numbers, the deregistration went on without submitting the final VAT filings. Then it was extremely difficult to communicate and find a solution for this problem. In summary the Amazon VAT Services by AVALARA is a good solution to streamline your VAT filings in multiple countries as long as you don't have some kind of edge case. The communocation between amazon seller, amazon support and AVALARA support needs improvement.
