Thanks for your time and comments re the GST. The section for the GST within the Accounting preferences does not have provision for GST presumably until the user actually sets up the GST sub system of QBO.A PDF copy is attached.
It twigged to me that if I don't setup the GST then it could function without any GST transactions which is what I want.
It does do that.I have commenced with a banking feed and entered transactions without any GST setting required which is great.
I do not see where this is noted in any of the help files and I did check extensively.
So if in future a user wants a file without any GST transactions simply do not set up GST at the outset.
