Avalara has acquired the “operational assets” of Compli, a California-based company that helps makers of alcoholic beverages comply with government rules and regulations.

Compli’s 45 employees will move over to Avalara, though the company will hang on to its offices in Paso Robles, Calif. and Boulder Colo., Founder and CEO Rachel Dumas-Rey wrote in a blog post. Dumas-Rey will become the general manager of the beverage alchohol division at Avalara.

Avalara said in a press release that Compli is a leader in helping companies navigate the complex “regulatory maze governing the production, distribution, and sale of beverage alcohol.” Compli “has served thousands of wineries, distilleries, breweries, wholesalers, and importers through its customers.”

“Avalara’s mission is to serve the tax compliance needs of all companies in all industries, worldwide,” Marshal Kushniruk, executive vice president of corporate development at Avalara. “Compli has exceptional IP, technology, and expertise, with a broad customer base in the beverage alcohol space, and we are fortunate to find a great team to help Avalara serve the needs of our customers and partners.”

Avalara has grown to more than 1,500 employees across 12 offices around the world. The tax automation company, which went public last June, today hit a milestone of 700 prebuilt integrations into e-commerce, point of sale and other business applications.
