AvaTax for Brazil, Canada, and India

This article applies to:AvaTax

You need to take some extra steps and keep some additional things in mind if you want to use AvaTax to calculate tax for Brazil, Canada, or India. 


Brazil requires additional documentation if you want to do business outside of Sao Paolo. Speak to a tax professional to understand what you need to do to collect and pay tax within Brazil. If you need to add additional places in Brazil to your company profile in AvaTax, a customer service agent must do it for you.


Canada has different tax rates based on the province where your company does business. Once you select Canada, you need to select the individual provinces where you collect provincial tax. If you do not select a province, you will collect only the federal GST tax for transactions in the province.

Canadian provinces are split into three different ways to collect and pay tax. AvaTax keeps track of the different tax types for you as long as you add the provinces where your company does business to your company profile.

  • New Brunswick
