Some products—such as clothing, food, software, medical supplies, software subscriptions, and freight—are taxed differently depending on where they're sold.
You also have the option to send a Universal Product Code (UPC) from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations to AvaTax for managing product taxability. To use this option, UPCs need to be assigned to the items you sell, and those UPCs need to be mapped to Avalara tax codes. If a UPC isn't assigned to an item, the model number is sent to AvaTax as the default item code. Talk to your Account Manager if you want to use UPCs.
Before you begin
Before you map an item to a UPC, enable the UPC to be used as an item code. In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, go to Avalara AvaTax > Setup > Configuration Settings. On the General tab, enable Use UPC as Item Code.
- In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, open the item record of the item you want to map to a UPC.
- Enter the UPC you want to use for a product or a service in the GTIN field.
