The Internet has substantially changed the way consumers today shop. Product research and reviews, pricing, and purchase are now instant at the touch of the consumer’s finger or command via virtual assistant. Retail businesses are changing online and brick-and-mortar operations to be more efficient, from product development to supply chain, to overhead and sales distribution. Retailers selling online also need to ensure they are abiding by economic nexus legislation for sales and use tax in certain states.

Our firm works with numerous retail businesses ranging in size from small, one-person ownership to large, multi-million dollar stores. We have resources to help retailers meet compliance requirements, reduce costs, and serve as your trusted advisor to help sustain and grow your business.
