Configure your company hierarchy

This article applies to:Avalara CertCapture

A Company Hierarchy makes it easier to search for customers and compliance documents in CertCapture. Create companies for separate divisions, geographic locations, or subsidiaries of your business. Organize those companies into a Company Grouping to view information from several companies at once. Only Admin users can modify the Company Hierarchy.

After setting up your Company Hierarchy, use the groupings to run a search or report.
