The company code is a unique identifier for your company. For the AvaTax Free Trial your company code is user defined - you get to make it up. We recommend a 3 or 4 letter abbreviation for your company. The field has a 25 character limit and you cannot change it once it is set.

What about for the sandbox or production? What should the code be for that?

For most integrations, you have the option to define your company code and we suggest a short abbreviation of your company name.

However, there are a handful of integrations where the company code is predefined based on your accounting software. In those instances, you'd want to use that value.

For more information, see this article: https://help.avalara.com/FYHP/002_All_About_Company_Codes
Note that if your integration is not listed, you can simply define the company code within AvaTax.
