The integration will be established which will sync sales transactions from Sage Intacct to Avalara. Tax will be calculated in Avalara; summarized tax will be updated back into Sage Intacct.

Native integration works on a post of sales transactions in Sage Intacct. After-tax calculation; tax amounts and rates are updated at line level. Upon posting of sales invoice in Sage Intacct; integration will sync sales transaction with Avalara.

Avalara will calculate tax and will be returned the calculated tax amounts. This amount will be updated back into Sage Intacct.

Avalara doesn’t support inline locations; it maps a company/entity as a company in Avalara. To resolve this; integration will post one or multiple transactions in Avalara by Locations/Company codes.

Assuming the sale invoice mentions 3 different inline locations; each line item will be posted under the appropriate company in Avalara. In Avalara; transaction Document no. will be the same as Sage Intacct Invoice/Document no. There will be 3 transactions posted in Sage Intacct under separate companies.

Appropriate tax will be added depending on whether a customer is generated through Point of sale, E-commerce, or direct sale. In the case of a multi-entity in Sage Intacct, they are handled as different companies for multi-entity taxation. The GUMUTM for Sage Intacct-Avalara is your business’s perfect tax compliance partner!
