I am having trouble getting GST recognised in a split expense where one item has gst and the other does not. No gst registers for the transaction overall.

Hi office136-

 

When you split a transaction, you can allocate the GST for each "split" so to speak. Is the transaction showing the correct GST for each segment and simply not calculating on your BAS? 

 

Additionally, can you let me know how the expense was added, manually, from the bank feed? Once I learn a bit more we can try to find a solution for the issue. 

 

Keep me posted!

Thanks Christine,

I have allocated each split a separate gst - one gst free and one gst of 10%  as you suggested and still no go. I have tried it numerous times. See attached

Hi office136.

 

Judging by the screenshot it looks as though you have split the transaction correctly but the $7.50 amount is not calculating the GST on top.

 

Try changing the amount to $8.25 instead and make sure the GST code is GST on Purchases.

 

This should all add up to the $37.75 total amount.

Thanks Kristen,

Good suggestion. I tried that but there must be something wrong with it in the back end as I get an error - see the attached file. I tried all gst codes to no avail.

I'm away for the next 6 days so if people send me helpful suggestions - I am not ignoring you :-) I'm just meditating.

Thanks for your reply office136,

 

Judging by the screenshot you have sent, the error is pointing out that you have not selected a Category for your second line item.

 

If you chose one from the drop down menu this error message will go away.

 

This should fix the error, unless there is something else I'm missing?

 

Mediation sounds really good right about now! I'm jealous :P

Hi Kristian,

 

Yes, you were right Kristian. I forgot the category. All fixed (except the gst)

Thanks for your help Linda
