What is Batch processing in Avalara AvaTax?

Overview

You received a notification about Batch processing and want to know what feature of the Avalara service will be affected.

Environment

Avalara AvaTax

Resolution

  • Batch processing is uploading/importing data into Avalara AvaTax:
    • Import types include Transactions, Items, Exemption Certificates, Tax Rules, and Company Locations
    • Batch processing is accessed in the admin console under Tools > Import Data or via Batch Services through the API

 

Note: Though you can calculate tax using a batch import, batch processing service is not the same service as regular tax calculation, which is completed through the Tax Service.
