Edit or Delete a Transaction

This article applies to:Avalara TrustFile

In the course of reconciling and troubleshooting problems with your transaction data, you may need to make changes. Edit or delete transactions to reconcile problems with this data.

If you use a connector to synchronize your data, remember that edits, deletions, or modifications to data in TrustFile aren't sent back to your accounting software. If you're synchronizing data, it may be easier to correct the error in the accounting software. When the connector synchronizes data, the error is corrected in TrustFile without reconciliation issues. It saves you the step of changing the transaction in two places.

To change a transaction in TrustFile:

  1. Search for a transaction
  2. Edit or delete the transaction, depending on the discrepancies you find in your transaction data

Search for a transaction

Find the transaction you need to edit or delete.

View all transactions on a return

  1. On the Current Returns page, locate the state return on which the transaction occurred, and then click View Details in the state summary window.
  2. On the Review & File page, click the Liability Report tab, scroll down, and then click Transactions in this return. Use Advanced Filtering to narrow down transactions in this return.

Search for an individual transaction

  1. On the Current Returns page, click the Transactions tab.
  2. In the search window, enter the order ID, or enter the date range for the transaction and click the Magnifying Glass. For additional search options, click Advanced Filtering.

While reconciling and troubleshooting, you may find the need to change a transaction.

  3. Click Save All and Exit. The edited transactions disappear from the transactions table while TrustFile applies your changes. Depending on the number of transactions edited, there may be a short delay before they reappear.
