How can I allow a new subsidiary in NetSuite to use AvaTax?


You added a new subsidiary to NetSuite and need it to use AvaTax.


NetSuite OneWorld


NetSuite OneWorld has subsidiary capability. NetSuite Basic does not.

  • In Netsuite: go to Avalara > Setup Configure Avalara
    • Enter the License Key, Username, and Password. Then, click Validate.
    • Go to the Tax Calculation tab.
    • Scroll down and find the new subsidiary.
    • Click on that row, in the second column, and switch the Default Tax Code setting to AvaTax.
  • On the customer records for the new subsidiary, ensure the Tax Item is set to AvaTax. 
  • Update the subsidiary's Default Company Code to match the company code you set in AvaTax.
