Can the system gst rate of 10% be changed to 15% or new gst codes be set up with different rates


Hello Gail,

I'd like to give you a short preview about GST. 

When you set up a Goods and Services Tax (GST) in QuickBooks Online (AU), it defaults to 10%. The sales tax percentage is provided by the Australian Tax Office.

For now, changing the rate is unavailable. Nevertheless, you can create a new sales tax with a different rate.

You can follow these steps:

  1. Click GST, then choose Add tax.
  2. Click Tax rate.
  3. Enter a desired name in the Tax name field.
  4. Choose either or both Sales or/and Purchases
  5. Enter the new rate then choose the account.
  6. Click Save

Please let me know if you need something else. I'll be here for 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.
