Making Sales Tax Less Taxing

Rory Rawling, a CPA, integrator of enterprise resource planning (ERP), and software developer discovered that his clientele needed an affordable and efficient way to manage and calculate transactional taxes. In 2004, Rawlings, Scott McFarlane, and Jared Vogt founded Alvara on Bainbridge Island to help businesses of all sizes with sales tax management or in their words, they make “sales tax less taxing.”
