Why is there a tiny difference in rate between Avatax and Netsuite?


At the line level in Netsuite there are small differences in the rate percentage from what the Avalara AvaTax admin console is showing.




  • This can happen when there are multiple lines in the NetSuite software because to display the rate in NetSuite itself it does a backwards calculation.
  • Since NetSuite functionality doesn't inherently have the rate to display it NetSuite has to do one of two things:
  • Make another call to the service (charging you more for usage)
  • OR calculate it with the data already available in NetSuite (this is what we chose to save you on your usage)
