Canada: Record income tax by instalments each quarter

In Quebec, Canada, each quarter, I need to pay income tax instalments.

Can you provide a step by step guide on HOW TO RECORD this in QuickBooks?

I understand, the amount paid, will only show in Balance sheet.

It will not show on income statement.

Do I record yearly corporate taxes the same way? How about 

GST/HST AND QST payment, is it record the same way?

Thank you

Hi info,

It’d be a delight to assist you with your concern today.

You can record instalment in QuickBooks Online. Let me share with you how.

  1. Click Taxes.
  2. Go to Payments, and then click Record instalment.

Once done, it will appear on your tax return and will deduct based on the date of the installment. It also works the same way in provincial and GST installment payments.

With regard to the corporate tax, it should be tracked and recorded manually via expense transaction or contact an accountant. GST/HST and QST is the Canada Government tax and provincial tax.

Let me know if you have further questions about the products. I'd be more than glad to explain it to you further. Thank you.

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.
