The Ledger screen allows you to select a Tax Setting for each Transactional Ledger. This is a way to include each Company Code that you have set up in Avalara. Each Tax Setting Name that you created in the Tax Settings screen will be available to select from the Tax Settings drop-down list on the Ledger screen for each Ledger.
If you are using the Accounting Seed Native Tax method, each Tax Setting Name can also be selected from the Tax Settings section of the Ledger screen for each Ledger.
Important: After creating a new Tax Settings record in the Tax Settings screen, it must be associated with a Ledger. If the Tax Settings record is not associated with a Ledger, you will not be able to post/unpost any related transactions.
