Avalara FAQ

Find answers to common questions about Shopify's integration with Avalara.

What is a default tax code?

A default tax code is the label that applies to the majority of products, including clothing, digital goods, and services.

Does this integration support VAT?

Yes, this integration supports VAT but not VAT exemptions. Avalara will work for rate calculation, however. For Europe and anywhere else, Avalara can't collect VAT IDs, which are required for exemption reporting and returns.

Can I use this in Shopify POS?

This integration works for Shopify POS on Android and iOS devices.

Why won't my return documents show up in my Avatax Console?

If you refund a dollar amount for an order without also selecting an item or restock quantity, then the refunded tax amount won't be applied to a specific item, and a return document won't be created in Avatax Console.
