Richard Asquith, Avalara Avalara has named Richard Asquith as VP of global tax compliance. The Bainbridge Island, Wash.-based company says Asquith's hiring is part of its plan to develop its transactional tax compliance offerings internationally. Based in the United Kingdom, Asquith founded the TMF Group and led its global VAT practice for 10 years. He began his career at KPMG in the U.K. and later joined Ernst & Young, and assisted companies entering in new markets while working in Russia, Hungary and France.

His hiring follows the April acquisition of Xytax, which provides software compliance products for the motor fuels, petroleum products, and natural gas industry in the US and Europe. In a busy week, Avalara  announced it will provide sales tax calculations for the GoDaddy Online Store. It also said that its software has been integrated into the control panel of Bigcommerce and that it had approved CoreSense as a certified solution partner, meaning that company can integrate Avalara's software into its own applications.
