Can Netsuite show tax details at the line level?

Overview

I would like for there to be tax details per line item, in Netsuite displayed after AvaTax is called for tax calculation.

Environment

Netsuite 

Resolution

  • AvaTax sends back the tax details including rates, jurisdictions and tax amounts, per line level to NetSuite. 
    •  The tax details are shown on the AvaTax tab.
    • To display tax rate on the 'Items' tab of the invoice. Select either 'Base Rate' or 'Net Rate'. In NetSuite, under Avalara > Setup > Configure Avalara > Tax Calculation tab.
      • Select Show Base Rate to show a tax rate that includes all the jurisdictions for the transaction, whether or not that tax was applied to the transaction.
      • Select Show Net Rate to show the tax rate applied to the transaction.
    • Re-save the transaction in NetSuite to update the tax rate.
  • Netsuite itself does not have a place for this information, thus making the tax details not able to be shown at the line level of an invoice in Netsuite.
    • This is native Netsuite functionality and cannot be changed
  • If you pull up the transaction in the AvaTax Admin Console, you can view the tax details by line
    • The instructions can be found here.
