What logic is applied when an exemption number is used on a transaction?


You want to know how Avalara applies exemptions when you list exemption certificate information in the Exemption No. filed of a transaction, or send an exemption certificate number from your accounting system.

  • Transactions using the Exemption No. field are exempt as L "Other", since no particular type of exemption is defined
  • L other type exemptions are applicable in the US and Canada, to make a customer exempt outside of the US and Canada create an exempt entity tax rule using L as the exemption reason and selecting Taxable = No
