Purchase Order Information Flow

The graphic below will illustrate how information flows through the purchasing process when Avalara AvaTax is integrated with SmarterCommerce. Please note that tax is calculated for display purposes at each of the following touch points:

Purchase Order Entry - temporary order document for display only

Purchase Order Print - temporary order document for display only

PO Receipts - temporary order document for display only

Voucher Match (P4314) - This process will record the Invoice in Avalara (depending the tax type).  Voucher match could happen through (1) Receipts to Match,  (2) Orders to Match and/or (3) Freight to Match (P4314) during the Match Voucher to Open Receipt process.  In all three cases if the connector is active the tax record(s) will be written to Avalara.


By default the Avalara AvaTax Connector is valid for domestic USA and Canada addresses only.  If the country is outside the USA or Canada and Avalara AvaTax integration is desired contact your Avalara customer account manager and purchase Global Services.  Once Global Services have been provisioned onto your account you will see the additional countries in your Nexus Jurisdictions. Note: Although Global Services will allow for international tax calculation, it does not enable address validation for these countries. Currently Avalara validates addresses ONLY for USA and Canada.  In additional, update User Defined Code (UDC) 59 / AT within JD Edwards setting eligible AvaTax calculation countries.
