Can I force origin sourcing in Netsuite?


You want to know how to override the default sourcing for a transaction to force origin-based sourcing within AvaTax for NetSuite. 




  • There are 2 different ways:
    • Locationbased Pick Up:
      • Setup > Company > Locations > Edit Location > check the Pick Up checkbox > Save.
      • When the location is selected on a form, the transaction is sourced from the Location address instead of the Ship-to address.
    • Enable Pick Up on the Transaction form:
      • Customization > Lists, Records, & Fields > Transaction Column Fields > Pick Up > Display tab > set Display Type to Normal.
  • This shows the Pickup field on your transaction record.
  • When this field is enabled, select it on each transaction, as needed, to force origin sourcing.
  • If a Location has Pick Up checked, tax will be based on the origin address regardless of whether the checkbox is selected on the transaction form.
