Cash basis tax (GST/VAT) not including creditor payment

I have a basic subscription.  

I have previous FY creditors entered under accounts payable via opening journal.  when making payment against this opening journal there is no way to assign GST so that it is picked up and calculated when preparing the return on a cash basis.

GST is prepare on a cash basis but EOY accounts a accrual basis


Hi JoanneR,

You'll want to set up the GST first to enable the tax column in the Journal Entry.

Here's how:

  1. Click Taxes.
  2. Click the Set up tax button.
  3. Enter the necessary information in the fields.
  4. Click Next. Then, click Got it.

Afterwards, you can edit the journal entry and then add the GST.

I've added a screenshot 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.
