How do I pay a vendor for the HST i missed adding to his last paymeny (on his next cheque) without messing something up?

I paid out a vendor from his usual bill but forgot to pay him the HST on the amount he billed us. I would like to be able to correct this and pay him the amount owing on his next bill. Is there a specific way to do this?



You have a couple options for this.

1.  Go to the original bill that is missing the HST, add the HST and re-save.  The previous payment should remain applied and the HST amount will show as unpaid.  When you go to "pay bills", this one should appear with the HST amount which you can select as you would a regular bill payment.

** If the original bill date is in a fiscal year which has been closed, do not do this.  If this is the case, go to option 2 and use the first day of the current fiscal year for the 'new' bill.

2. Enter a new bill with HST only - enter the account/expense line you normally use with a $0 value and manually override the tax amount to what HST should be paid.  Again, this will appear in your pay bills window.

Hope this helps!

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.
