how do i manually enter GST on a bill transaction?

GST only covers a portion of a bill transaction. How do I manually enter a GST amount when entering a bill transaction?


Hi Delcorinc,

I’d like to help get this one sorted out.

I have two options for you.

If you’d like to enter the GST manually, you just have to write the amount on the GST box beneath the Subtotal. The GST box does not appear if you haven’t set up the tax on your account.

And if you want to add or write the GST only on the bill, record the amount with the tax code on the first line. Then record the same amount on the second line in a negative number under the Out of Scope

Once you follow the second option, the system will record only the tax.

Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to ask.

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.
