How do I enter an HST amount that is different than 15% of the amount paid in a cheque?
HST: I don't understand how to input unique amounts of HST for things like cheques written for customs/duty (higher percentage of HST) or Pharmacy bills which include both taxable and non-taxable items.
1. When I unlock the tax button (choosing "Inclusive of Tax"), and the "tax type" column appears, it asks for options like "exempt, zero rated, HST NS, HST 1/2, and any choice I make changes the amount of the actual invoice in such a way that the total on the sheet is now wrong.
2. For example, try this:
1. I wrote a cheque for $127.87 for Duty and Customs and Taxes for a parcel from the United States which cost $514.99 USD. In that Duty invoice, the actual HST paid was $23.23.
3. Now, try to put $23.23 as total HST paid (or $11.65 as 1/2 HST paid) in such a way that the total of the cheque amount stays at $127.87.
I can't seem to make that work without it changing the final amount of the cheque.
