I have moved from MYOB to Quickbooks and had outstanding GST and PAYG liabilities - i am now wondering now how to record these payments to the ATO within Quickbooks?

I have moved from MYOB to Quickbooks and had outstanding GST and PAYG liabilities at the time we moved - so I have put in the opening balances of these liabilities into Quickbooks and I have since been paying these liabilities to the ATO. So i am now wondering now how to record these payments to the ATO within Quickbooks to reduce my liability accounts? I have my bank feeds linked so i can see the payments to the ATO in the banking section but just confused on how to add these into quickbooks. Thanks


Hello, hooked.

You can record first the GST payments in QuickBooks then match them to the transactions in your bank feeds. You can check this article for further information about recording GST payments: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1761664.

To match the transactions to bank feeds:

  1. Go to Banking from the left menu.
  2. Select the Banking tab and go to the bank account involve.
  3. Under the For Review tab, locate and click the transaction to review.
  4. Select Find match to show the list of possible match transaction.
  5. Select the payment you’ve made in QuickBooks.
  6. Click Save.

For more information about this process, please refer to this article: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1773490.

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.
