Can anyone tell me why there is a variation when you go into the GST menu that says :
To Lodge Bas $965 APR-JUN
But when I print the GST Summary Report it says -
9 REFUND OR PAYMENTS DUE $975
A difference of approx $10 which comes from the Tax amount for Purchases.
It logically should be the same even if I have made a mistake in the GST code.
Let's check your GST/BAS Amendment report and Transactions by Tax Code to verify if there were changes made on the previous lodgement or if a transaction was coded with GST incorrectly. Basically, once the BAS is marked as lodged, then that period locks and any changes to transactions within that period are specifically tracked as amendments. Not only are they tracked, but they will also affect the next BAS lodgement.
Here's how to run the amendment report:
If there are no amendments showing, please run the Transactions by Tax Code and check the totals and see if there is any discrepancy. Here's how:
If the amounts are still incorrect, you may have to request the BAS to be unlodged for the previous BAS, and to do this I'd recommend contacting our Customer Care Team to further help you.

Feel free to post again in the Community if you have more questions about QuickBooks Online.
Thanks for getting back to us and letting us know. Since there is an amendment showing, it's best to reach out to our Customer Care Team to request the BAS be unlodged that way the changes made will be accounted to the correct BAS period.
If you have an accountant that uses QuickBooks Online for an accountant you can add them to your QuickBooks account and they should be able to unlodge the BAS in your account. If not, please contact Customer Care Suppor directly.
