I want the option to set OUT OF SCOPE for all my bills to happen automatically. It is overy gratuitous step of having to select that for everything I post.

I see this concern was brought to QuickBooks attention 2 years ago and nothing has changed. Why not? 


Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out to us here on the Community! Creating default tax settings for your bills would save you tons of time. QuickBooks Online has implemented this setting for your Sales forms, allowing you to assign a default tax code to each of your customers.

At this time, the feature hasn't been made available for Bills and suppliers. I think this is a great idea and I'd be happy to pass along your suggestions to our software development team. I'd also encourage you to submit feedback from within your QuickBooks account by clicking the Gear icon > Feedback. Our engineers are always looking for cool new features to introduce on their next update.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Have a great day!

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.
