Add a company

This article applies to:AvaTax

When you start using our platform, you set up a company. A company in Avalara is a model of your business from a sales tax and consumer use tax perspective. If you have a multi-company organization, add the additional companies. Add the parent company first, if your organization has parent company/child company relationships.

Before you begin


  1. Add your company information.
    Begin by entering your address and tax ID numbers.
  2. Tell us where you collect and pay tax.
    Enter the states, local jurisdictions, and countries where you're registered to collect and pay tax.
  3. Verify your jurisdictions and activate your company.
    Double-check that we know everywhere you collect and pay tax. Confirm the tax types, effective date for each jurisdiction, and tax ID numbers.
  4. Connect to our platform.
