AvaTax release 18.1.1 for Admin Console, January 23, 2018


  • MOSS Id and MOSS country can now be set on the company information page. These settings don't affect sales tax calculations, but are used for reports and returns by companies paying VAT in the European Union.
  • You can now set whether or not your business should be considered the importer of record by default on cross-border transactions, in order to support more complicated nexus setups for a wider array of cross-border business models. We've reviewed your transactions and set your default importer of record nexus settings as follows:
    • If your global transactions always include the United States or Canada in the origin or destination address, importer of record nexus default is set to True
    • If your global transactions don't include the United States or Canada in the origin or destination address, importer of record nexus default is set to False
  • Returns reports can now be filtered to only show locked transactions. This option is available on the following reports:
    • Consumer Use Tax Levels reports
    • Exemption Detail by Jurisdiction
    • Consumer Tax Jurisdiction Detail
    • Consumer Use Tax Summary
    • Colorado Multi-Location
