December 2019 | Warning before taking payment if taxes have not been calculated
If you're using our Avatax integration, you'll find a new setting under Settings > Tax > Tax settings to 'Show warning if taxes are not fully calculated before taking a payment'. When this is enabled, a warning message is displayed when attempting to capture or record a payment against a sales order that hasn't had the taxes calculated by Avalara.
December 2019 | Set channel as location code when committing invoices to Avalara
Avalara uses location codes to identify the marketplace from which your orders originated. This lets you view and sort transactions made for each marketplace and allows you to exclude transactions from AvaTax's calculations when a marketplace collects and pays for you. As such, we now send the order's channel name in Brightpearl to Avatax in the location code field.
