Store and Company Setup

Store Setup within JDEdwards

A Store represents a particular type of business within the organization with a common set of business rules. Stores must be setup utilizing the Work with Stores application (PQ670001). For Avalara AvaTax only ‘***’ – System Definition is required to be defined. Other stores are used for SmarterCommerce Point of Sale.


Company Settings

In the Avalara AvaTax Administrator Console

You get to create your own company code. Your company code helps AvaTax access your company's tax profile (it can have a maximum of 25 characters). Create a company code and write it down. Many customers choose a three to five letter abbreviation for their company. During the account activation process in the Administrator Console, you will be asked to enter the code you created in the Company Code box.
