Currently a subs September Invoice to us with labour and expenses is without GST but we have just found out that he needed to charge it, he has been paid through EFT for the original amount without GST added , how do we now pay him the GST amount of the invoice?
Hey there, @readerreit.
Welcome, and thank you for stopping by the Community. Do you mind elaborating on what version of QuickBooks you're using (e.g. QuickBooks Desktop US, or UK)? It's my goal to make sure you get the best help possible with paying your subcontractor GST on their invoices, so I want to clear that up before I continue.
Let me know with a comment down below. Should you have any additional questions about this or anything else QuickBooks, don't hesitate to ask me here in the Community.
Thanks for that information, @readerreit. I'm transferring your post to the appropriate team so you can get the help you need. Thank you again for stopping by the QuickBooks Community.
Hello there, readerreit.
I can help record the GST amount you need to pay your subcontractor.
You can re-open the bill created for the original payment. Then, manually add the GST (Goods and Services Tax) code assigned to the subcontractor.
This way, it’ll open a balance for the GST amount that you can later pay. Make sure to double-check the subcontractor’s profile to see which tax code you’ve set up.
To check the subcontractor’s profile:
To edit the Bill:
To pay the GST:
That should do it! You can now pay your subcontractor for the GST discrepancy amount.
Feel free to let me know if you have additional question. I’ll be around.
