How do I get a Profit and Loss report so show with GST inclusive amounts?

My budget includes both personal and small business costs and I want to run a report to compare my actual costs against my budget but to change my budget to show GST exclusive costs is too complicated. I have found that the profit and loss report does what I want other than to show GST inclusive costs, how to I run a report to show taxable amounts?


Hello  brian,

Profit and Loss report would only show the exclusive of GST amounts, as the GST amounts would show in balance sheet report under BAS liabilities payable account.

As there are transactions with or without GST, this report needs to be exclusive of GST to show the true value of profit or loss.

Hope this explains, thank you

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.
