CereTax and ITEXPO Exhibitor Datagate Collaborate for Smart Tax Solutions in Telecom Billing

By Greg Tavarez October 12, 2023

Communications businesses, including telecommunications companies, internet service providers and cable providers, often struggle with intricate financial operations due to the very nature of their services and the multifaceted regulatory environment that surrounds them.

These companies offer services that range from broadband internet and cable television to VoIP and data services. Each service can be subject to various types of taxes, fees and regulatory requirements, adding layers of complexity to their billing and taxation processes. Additionally, customers often bundle these services, further complicating billing as it necessitates the allocation of charges across different service categories, each with its specific tax implications.

For example, different tax treatment might apply to landline phones, cellphones and VoIP services, and these regulations can change over time. Staying compliant with these regulations, including collecting and remitting the correct taxes to the appropriate authorities, requires a deep understanding of the legal landscape and the ability to adapt to ongoing changes.

Communications businesses must navigate this regulatory terrain while ensuring their financial operations remain accurate and compliant.

CereTax, the intelligent sales tax solution, and Datagate, the telecom billing solution for MSPs, are integrating their sales tax and telecom billing platforms to give communications businesses a comprehensive solution for tax calculation and billing that streamlines financial operations.

CereTax's tax system employs real-cloud microservices. This ensures a constantly available platform with fast reporting capabilities and the capacity to easily expand to accommodate any level of demand without encountering delays.

Datagate is designed to make telecom billing quick and easy. It offers rating features to rate, bill and bundle usage-based VoIP services such as tolls, toll-free, international and long-distance. Datagate also allows organizations to combine billing for multiple providers in one, unified billing platform for faster invoicing.

CereTax’s integration with Datagate's telecom billing platform provides customizable solutions, allowing telecommunications businesses to adapt to the unique and often complex tax requirements of their industry. This flexibility is particularly valuable in a sector governed by intricate regulatory frameworks. The integration ensures real-time accuracy in tax calculations by harnessing real-time data. This minimizes issues related to tax rates and eliminates the need for time-consuming manual adjustments that are often required with other tax systems.

Moreover, Datagate's integration with popular MSP software like ConnectWise (News - Alert), Autotask, HaloPSA, Kaseya and QuickBooks simplifies the challenging task of telecom billing. This streamlines the process, enabling service providers to tap into an additional monthly revenue source with minimal disruption to their existing workflows.

The integration also guarantees effortless tax compliance, helping businesses stay updated with the latest tax laws and regulations and reducing the risk of errors and associated penalties, and it enhances operational efficiency by automating billing and tax calculations, allowing companies to allocate their time and resources more efficiently to other core business functions.

"By combining our expertise in tax management with Datagate's proven billing capabilities, we are empowering businesses to navigate the complexities of taxation without draining valuable time and resources." said Brent Reeves, CRO of CereTax.

The integration offers customers a comprehensive billing and tax solution, equipping businesses with a competitive advantage in the contemporary and intricate financial environment.
