Import Duty and GST Customs from Broker


Looking to setup my Import Duty and GST - Customs.

This is a different tax that regular and needs to be captured on a new RM001 Canada Revenue Agency Line that my Broker is providing for me.

Need to know how to setup the items in QBO.

For Example: 

Duty is charged - $88.02

GST - Customs - 87.18

Duty is a non GST Rate and GST - Customs is a full GST item.

Problem is I don't know how to set this up as a seperate sale Tax on Import which was added as a new TAX..

Any help would be appreciated, and sorry for the stupid questions..



Hi Josip!

Thanks for the additional information.

To record expenses that are fully GST, follow the steps found here:

If you would like to create a separate sales tax code for the GST - Customs line item, check out this article: You can use the new tax code with the method above to track your GST - Customs expenses.

Let me know if that 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.
