what is the gst code on sales?

If I set up a separate bank account to deposit the GST amount from an invoice that has been paid and that Iv reconciled, what do I put down as the Type of GST when asked? Ie: I go into "banking" and try to ädd" the gst amount that Iv collected, it asks for the GST. the blue box comes up and it say's (sales of product income). In the gst dropdown do I put öut of scope"(0% sales) Or ïnput Tax (0%sales)? Don't know what to select.


Hi Terry,

Thank you for your inquiry. 

If you have allocated GST for the invoice in your main bank account, you will select GST code, Out of Scope, for this separate bank account to avoid recording GST twice.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
