IN:Batch Edit product List for NEW GST Tax Rates this articles says below


"Did you know you can use the overwrite option to update info like sales price and purchase cost for multiple items at once? Just edit your Excel or CSV file with the new values and select the Overwrite all values... checkbox. We recommend that you use this technique only to update fields such as Sales Price/Rate, Purchase Cost, and Sales Description. "


Question : However with GST in India , we need to change the default tax rate of almost every product item in our product list and doing it manually is BIG No as the amount of human errors it is prone .

DO you still recommend to use the batch edit procedure as listed in note above to change the default tax code for every product to new GST tax rates and codes ?

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.
