POSitive Supports WA State Destination Sales Tax

  PDF Print E-mail
POSitive Software has updated versions of their popular point of sale software products to include improved support for Washington State’s new destination-based sales tax. This change in the tax law will affect all Washington retailers who make deliveries within the state.“Destination-based sales tax is major part of the national Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement, which has been adopted by more than 20 states”, said Wayne Heaton, V.P. of sales for POSitive Software. “POSitive Software products have always supported destination-based sales tax, but now Washington state retailers that make deliveries have to contend with hundreds of possible taxing jurisdictions.”“Washington state retailers who use POSitive products can now import current tax information right into their software”, continued Heaton. “This is going to be a tremendous timesaver when new tax files are released every quarter.”

All current versions of POSitive Software products, POSitive Retail Manager, POSitive for Windows and AveraSell can now import the Washington state quarterly sales tax file. Other state tax files that use the same format may also be imported.

Free Product Demo Available
Current users of POSitive Software products and retailers who need a better solution for handling destination-based sales tax can download a free demo of our latest software at .

POSitive Software Company was founded in 1993 to develop and market point-of-sale software. The Company serves customers in North America, the Caribbean, United Kingdom, South Africa and Australia.

    Pos Software

    There was a time in the not so distance past when the only thing that happened at the Point of Sale (POS), was an exchange of cash. Today, thanks to software specifically designed for point of sale  applications, a wide variety of tasks can be performed. The POS is now a place where an establishment’s commitment to customer service is confirmed. Information is exchanged with the customer via Customer Pole Devices. Sales data is recorded, and inventory reports can be generated, and inventory levels adjusted. The almost universal use of bar codes and scanning devices at the POS enables retailers to accurately track virtually every type of sales information. It is possible to program POS software to receive a scan, add the price to the running total of the order, display the item and the price for both customer information and security verification. The process does not need to end there. The purchased item can be subtracted from an inventory level. A pre-set level could trigger an automatic reorder. A detailed sales report can even be generated.     POS software does not represent the cost investment of hardware, and yet it is the software that provides the flexibility to stay on the cutting edge of customer service and satisfaction. The Point of Sale location has now expanded its function from simply cash exchange to be the heart of the accounting, inventory control and sales departments. It also serves as a customer service station. It is the wide variety of POS software and hardware like cash drawer, pole display, scanners, computers, that makes it all work.
