Avalara AvaTax Connector for HikaShop


Taxes & Mortgages, e-Commerce Integrations, HikaShop extensions

The Avalara-certified AvaTax Connector works with your HikaShop or HikaMarket store and dynamically delivers instantaneous sales tax decisions based on precise geo-location technology. AvaTax applies 100,000+ sales tax and VAT rules and applies them across 11,000+ jurisdictions and nearly 100 countries. For most businesses sales tax is an obligatory, complex nightmare.

AvaTax automation for your HikaShop or HikaMarket store makes taxes less taxing:


AvaTax applies US sales tax and VAT calculations as the transaction takes place via a secure, encrypted Internet connection without disrupting your existing workflow. Centralized, secure management enables tax schedules for new locations to be automatically assigned and maintained.


AvaTax integrates seamlessly with existing business systems and removes the guesswork. Rates are calculated “behind the scenes” and are automatically applied to the transaction. Reports are generated on-demand.


Forget about tracking rates, rule changes and tax holidays. Forget about figuring out HikaShop tax zones, rates and rules. AvaTax continuously updates data, making accurate sales tax calculations available immediately. Minimize audit risk using advanced address validation, sourcing and taxability determination, and jurisdiction assignment technology.

With Avalara AvaTax seamlessly integrated in your HikaShop or HikaMarket store, your business is powered to handle even the most complex global tax situations and rules in the EU and beyond, including:
- U.S. companies selling to EU companies or consumers
- Intra-EU Transactions, including accurate tax calculation for virtual goods
- EU companies selling to companies or consumers in the U.S.
- EU companies with wholly owned subsidiaries in the U.S.
