How does DAVO by Avalara work?

Once you complete your one-time set up, DAVO will take care of the rest. Guaranteed.

Continue to enter sales on your POS system

With DAVO, you won’t need to do anything differently. No extra buttons to push or steps to take. Just enter your sales like you normally do.

DAVO collects and sets aside sales tax

DAVO uses data from your POS system to set aside the exact amount of sales tax you collect daily. Sales tax is then transferred to DAVO’s secure tax holding account.

DAVO automatically files your state sales tax

Whenever your sales tax is due, DAVO will automatically file your taxes with the state, guaranteeing they’ll be on time.

DAVO automatically pays your state sales tax

Using the money it set aside daily, DAVO automatically pays the amount of sales tax you owe to the state, guaranteeing they’re paid in full.
