AccountSvc API Sample

Resolution

 

AccountSvc is currently accessible through the SOAP API only by using our .NET class library or building your own from WSDL. All requests must be authenticated with Account Admin level username/password credentials.The account number/license key credential pair cannot be used for AccountSvc.

 

See http://developer.avalara.com/api-docs/soap/accountsvc  for more detail.
