Coping with eBay's new GST collection process. Difficult.

I purchase items for my business from eBay regularly. Now that eBay is collecting GST on overseas purchases, it seems they are creating two transactions; one being the purchase price of the item and a second one which is just the GST component. Problem is, this is imported into QBO as two separate transactions. I can record the item purchase/price OK, as a GST Free purchase but how do I record just the GST component? I hope that's clear, I probably haven't explained it the best way. Any help greatly appreciated. Anthony


Hello there, sanctumfilms.

You may need to double-check on how the settings were configured in eBay. To guide you with the right steps, I’d suggest reaching out to eBay’s support team. They can help you with the right set up and give you more details in dealing with this type of issue.

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.
