Hello jarpac,

 

If you haven't set up your GST, I'd recommend leaving it as is. This'll allow you to create transactions without sales tax.

 

Otherwise, you can set your client's company to Out of scope of GST as their default tax rate selection. Here's how:

  1. Click the Gear icon in the upper-right corner and select Account and Settings.
  2. Select the Advanced tab and go to Accounting section.
  3. Select Out of scope of GST in the Default tax rate selection field.
  4. Click Save and Done.

It will be the default tax rate option, but you can still select a different one  when creating a transaction if necessary.

 

If you need anything else, please let me know.

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.

Thanks again
