Re: When are you going to add the option to adjust the gst within a journal entry?

Hello,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I’ll gladly assist you with this. QuickBooks Online lets you add and edit journal entries with the corresponding taxes, including GST, in a few easy steps. To create a journal entry, follow these steps:

  1. Select the plus icon (+) from the top-right corner
  2. Select Journal Entry
  3. Input the Journal date and Journal no.
  4. Input the relevant details for each line
  5. In the SALES TAX column, you can select the appropriate tax rate for this record (keep in mind that specific rates will only be available with specific accounts)
  6. Once done, select Save and close from the bottom-right corner

Here’s how to edit an already saved journal entry:

  1. Select the plus icon (+) from the top-right corner
  2. Select Journal Entry
  3. Select the clock icon on the top left corner to view the Recent Journal Entries
  4. Select View More
  5. Select the journal entry you wish to edit
  6. Once done making the changed you need, select Save and close from the bottom-right corner

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you for this.  Sorry I should have been more specific.  What I am looking for is that sometimes the GST amount does not necessarily calculate out per the rates.  I am hoping that QBO is going to let a manually edit the amount of the taxes  it automatically calculates and enters into the bottom area of the Journal Entry.  You can do this with QBD and am hoping that this is one of the functions they are looking to update.  There are work-arounds but they can be confusing to some.

I hear you on this. I'll make sure to send the valuable feedback to our engineers. I see the importance of being able to manually edit the tax amount. Which workaround are you having the most trouble with? I'd be happy to help clarify info associated with QB.
