This article applies to:Avalara AvaTax for NetSuite

To make sure AvaTax Update calculates tax for all your customers, add the AVATAX tax item to your customer records.

Before you begin

Before you assign a customer to AvaTax, create the AVATAX tax code.

Steps

Assign the AvaTax tax item to one customer

  1. Select a customer record to edit, and then go to the Financial tab.
  2. Under Tax Information, select TAXABLE. (If you've enabled the Enable Per Line Taxes on Transaction feature, the TAXABLE checkbox isn't visible at the transaction level because it's controlled directly from the customer card).
  3. Under Tax Item, select AVATAX. (Where appropriate select AVATAX-CAN, the tax code you created to assign to your customers in Canada.)

Assign the AvaTax tax item to many customers

  1. In NetSuite, go to Lists > Mass Update > Mass Updates.
  2. On the Mass Updates page, expand General Updates, and then select Customer.
