How do I make Point-of-Sale Transactions in Avalara AvaTax?

Overview

I want to reflect tax accurately for a transaction that is carried out at the point of sale. 
Also known as a cash-and-carry transaction, a Point-of-Sale transaction is where the product is delivered to the customer at the address location where the item is shipped. 

 

Environment

Avalara Avatax

Resolution

 

  • To do a transaction of this type, your origin and destination must be the same. 
  • Tax will calculate using the local taxes for the that location. 
  • Refer to your Accounting System documentation to determine where you would change your destination and origin documentation in the invoices, so that they are the same.
