The Taxmarc solution consists of two components, the Taxmarc Agent, and the Taxmarc Core. The Taxmarc Core is the heart of the tax engine that makes the actual tax decision based on applicable tax laws and customer configuration parameters. This Core can run as a standalone Engine in any of your SAP systems or even as a Cloud service.
For the Core to make the correct decision, a lot of input parameters are required. Source and destination of the product, taxability of customer and product to name some of them. The gathering of all required parameters is a complex process. If your transaction system is an SAP system, you can install the Taxmarc Agent to take care of the data gathering part, using the standard data and transaction links in an SAP system. At the same time, the Taxmarc Agent provides additional functionality like the Tax Control Framework.
