How to batch edit GST codes in QuickBooks Online

By Victor Johnson

1 min read

QuickBooks Online has default GST codes assigned to the chart of accounts. The good news is that you can update these default GST rates in a single batch.

Here’s how.

In the Chart of Accounts, simply select the accounts that you wish to update (to the same Tax Code) by ticking the boxes on the left. Then select Batch Actions. Then, Set default Tax Code.

Choose the tax code appropriate for the accounts selected, and click Apply.

QuickBooks will automatically reassign the default tax code for the accounts that were selected – and you’re done!

See a demo of this new feature here

Before you go, there’s 2 important things to note about this new feature:

  1. Not all accounts can have a default tax code. If your client attempts to assign a tax code to one of these accounts, QuickBooks Online will not make any changes.
  2. Certain accounts can only have Sales or Purchases tax codes. If your client attempts to assign a tax code to an account that does not support that tax type, QuickBooks Online will not make any changes.

We trust you will enjoy this new feature.
