Exempt a customer with an entity use code in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Map a customer record to an entity use code in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central so AvaTax knows to exempt the customer from tax. AvaTax exempts transactions for this customer as long as the code is valid for the jurisdiction where the transactions take place.

Before you begin

Make sure you've enabled entity use codes in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Go to Avalara AvaTax > AvaTax Configuration and make sure Enable Entity Use Code is on.

Steps

  1. In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, go to Avalara AvaTax > AvaTax Customer...se Code Mapping.
    "AvaTax Customer Entity/Use Code Mapping is the full name of the menu," but it's shortened in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
