IN: While recording GST paid on expenses, how can i record: No Input Credit, as we don't get input credit?

We are not elgible to receive input credit as our services are exempt. So, we want to create a new tax code called No-Input Credit and show it under expenses in P/L to track how much GST we paid on expenses in a year? Currently when i select tax rates, it is going to my balance sheet under GST input credit.


Hi, office

GST Exempt and GST Input claim not allowed (similar to zero-rated inputs but not, unique situation and not Deferred GST) are two different situations 

GST Exempt 

No GST is charged to goods you sell and buy

So no GST transactions are entered

GST Input claim not allowed but GST is charged on Sales 

Create an item called Input tax not allowed/restricted and link to an expenditure type item called Input tax not allowed/restricted 

when you creating the bills select this item for Input taxes you not claimed


Create Tax code Move to Tax centre > Add tax > Tax rate > then enter the details such as Name - not allowed/restricted Input taxes > Tax agency - GST/Select relevant > checkmark the Purchases > enter the GST rate not allowed/restricted to claim >Account - Expenses > hit Save.

Note: Expenditure may be not allowed for the purpose of the corporate tax, consult your tax consultant.

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.
