Frequently asked questions

What is AutoFile™?

AutoFile™ is a new offering by ShipCompliant that makes completing all of the monthly reports that you need to file dead simple. You continue your current workflow of using ShipCompliant to validate addresses, charge accurate sales tax, run compliance checks, and fulfill your shipments, then leave the reporting to us! We’ll give you full visibility into all of the data, reports, and payments that were made to give you full confidence that the reports are being filed accurately and on-time each month.

Do I have the option to confirm reports before they are filed?
Yes. By default, reports will be automatically confirmed at the deadline (the 7th of each month). But, if you want the ability to manually confirm each report, you can configure that in your preferences.
How easy is this process for someone new to compliance?
We keep the setup process detailed yet simple and easy to follow. If someone is new to compliance, they are a great candidate for AutoFileTM because we will give you context for each report and take care of all the details.
Will you AutoFile™ all of my reports?

We’ll AutoFile™ the vast majority of your reports, but a few reports are not currently eligible for AutoFile™. For example, we currently do not AutoFile™ in-state reporting because additional information needs to be captured that we do not currently collect. We’ll make it really clear if there are any reports that need to be filed manually each month.

Is AutoFile™ Secure?

Absolutley. Report and payment transmissions are sent via secure FTP, passwords are encrypted, and you control who has access to bank information. Only designated and qualified administrators can access and file AutoFile™ reports.

How do payments work?

Payments are made out of a business checking account that you designate. No escrow accounts, and you won’t have to give us a power of attorney. On the 1st of each month, we estimate your total tax liability for the month, and finalize that figure on the 7th after all order information is entered. As reports are made and payments issued from your account, you can watch each report’s payment go from pending to finalized status. You can view electronic copies of all checks that are written, all electronic payments made, and also easily reconcile with your accounting system.

Can I edit reports before filing?
Yes, you have complete control over the reports being filed. You can hold a report if you need to change order data, license information, even change the report frequecy. When your changes are finished, you give us the ‘go-ahead’ and we’ll file the report.
