Hello, Intermountain!

Here's how to remove HST information from your invoices.

To not show sales tax on the copies of the invoices you send to customers:

  1. Go to the Gear icon in the top right corner and select Custom Form Styles.
  2. Click Edit on your default style.
  3. Go to the Content tab.
  4. Click on the middle section of the invoice preview on the right.
  5. Uncheck the box next to Tax.
  6. Click Done.

To remove your HST number from your invoices:

  1. Select Taxes from the menu on the left and go to Sales Tax at the top.
  2. Click the Edit GST/HST drop down on the right.
  3. Choose Edit Settings.
  4. Remove the tax number from the Business Number (BN) box.
  5. Hit Save.

You can also change your default tax setting to Out of Scope. This will remove the Sales Tax column from your line items when you enter transactions. To do this:

  1. Click the Gear icon and select Account and Settings.
  2. Go to the Advanced tab on the left.
  3. Under the Accounting section, click on Default tax rate selection.
  4. Change the drop down to Out of scope of Tax.
  5. Click Save, then Done.

Feel free to reach back out if you have more questions!

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.
