Can I use the same document code more than once?

Overview

You want to know how many times you can use the same document code.

Environment

Avalara AvaTax

Resolution

  • You can use a document code only once per company profile and once per document type, if the document is posted
    • You can use the same document code on a Sales Invoice, Returns Invoice, and Purchase Invoice without issue
    • You can use the same document code once per each company (View a list of companies on the Organization tab)
      • The companies cannot be parent and child
  • When no document is posted (Committed), you can use the same number repeatedly, provided that document code is not in use on a transaction (document) that already exists in the admin console
