Post Asynchronous Transactions

Use the Asynchronous Posting utility to post transactions to the Admin Console that are already posted to Microsoft Dynamics NAV and not posted to the Admin Console. 

Post transactions

AvaTax lets you post transactions in Microsoft Dynamics NAV based on the status of the Enable Asynchronous AvaTax Posting option in the AvaTax configuration Tax Calculation tab.

  • If this option is  disabled, the transactions are posted synchronously, i.e. during the posting operation, AvaTax calculates sales tax, and then posts the transaction to both Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Admin Console. After posting, the Doc Status of this transaction is shown as Committed  in the Admin Console. 
  • If this option is enabled, the transactions are not posted during the posting operation. AvaTax calculates sales tax and then posts the transaction to Microsoft Dynamics NAV only. The Doc Status of this transaction is shown as Uncommitted in the Admin Console. To post the transaction in the Admin Console, use the Asynchronous Posting utility. After you run this utility, the Doc Status of this transaction is shown as Committed  in the Admin Console. 

Asynchronous Posting utility

To use the Asynchronous Posting utility, ensure that the Enable Asynchronous AvaTax Posting option in the AvaTax configuration > Tax Calculation tab is enabled and then follow these steps:

  1. In Microsoft Dynamics NAV, go to AvaTax > Utilities > Asynchronous Posting.

    1. To filter the transactions that you want to post to the Admin Console, you can apply the Date Filter and/or the Document Filter, and then click Apply Filter.
