About KAF Home

For over two decades, KAF Home has supplied, manufactured, and distributed home textiles and kitchenware with an unwavering commitment to quality. 

KAF Home predominantly shipped to retail stores, department stores, and mom and pop shops—but thanks to their explosive growth, they now also sell across e-commerce sites such as Amazon FBA and Target. 

Ranging from aprons, dish cloths, napkins, table runners, and more, the brand has garnered thousands of positive reviews and has continued to make a mark in the home and kitchenware industry since their inception.

Challenges 

Sales tax is complex. Keeping up with changes is its own full time job.

Once KAF Home expanded into online selling, CFO Gavin Sclar was managing sales tax himself. While it began with handling sales tax for the states they had nexus in, it quickly became clear that keeping up with sales tax compliance was its own full time job. 

From juggling different rules and regulations specific to each state, to keeping up with various selling platforms, Gavin’s valuable time was spent trying to untangle the complicated web of sales tax.

When it came time to look for a solution, he spoke with several providers. Along the way, he received a recommendation for Zamp. He decided to reach out, and the rest is history.


“I felt that personal touch, which I wasn't getting in my discussions with the other companies. And that's continued, till this day.”


Solution

Gavin has enjoyed the following benefits since Zamp has taken sales tax off his plate:   

Benefit #1: Top-notch customer service from a team of sales tax experts

Given the complexity of sales tax, questions inevitably arise. Fortunately, Gavin knows that assistance from Zamp’s sales tax experts is readily available should anything come up. 


“As soon as I ask a question or something is needed, it’s taken care of immediately.” 


Benefit #2: Sales tax peace of mind

Compliance is key to operating a thriving business. With Zamp, Gavin rests assured with monthly sales tax reports that cover all filing updates for his business.


“I feel confident and comfortable that I'm compliant, and I know that you guys will be there if I'm ever audited or if there are any issues.”


Benefit #3: Major time savings and a seamless onboarding process  

From spending several days to less than 30 minutes on sales tax, the time savings from no longer dealing with sales tax were significant.To get started, all Gavin had to do was: 

  1. 1. Give Zamp access to transactional data.
  2. 2. Zamp let him know what states they had the obligation to start collecting sales tax in, and he turned it on in the platform.
  3. 3. Zamp handles the rest.
  4. Prior to Zamp:


“Just for the state of California, I had been spending probably two solid days a quarter on sales tax.”


Results

Sales tax is no longer stressful, and Gavin’s time is better spent on maximizing business growth.  

Take a look at how Zamp has taken care of sales tax for Gavin and his team since they’ve onboarded: 

  • 6 months of accurate and timely filing
  • 70 filings completed
  • 30 state registrations completed, and 30 state accounts configured  

“The communication and customer service has been terrific.”


Zamp is happy to support KAF Home’s growth by managing sales tax from start to finish. Now, they can continue to cook up quality products within the home textiles and kitchenware space, without stressing over sales tax. Gavin’s advice to anyone considering Zamp:


“Just do it, it will save time and aggravation. Zamp gives you peace of mind and they’re a great company to deal with.”


Keeping up with an e-commerce business requires a lot of time—and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your valuable time worrying about sales tax compliance.
