HST filing

I filed the return in QBO and balance owing was $427.15  I printed the report and then I immediately undid the filing as it didn't look correct.  I confirmed the sales amount was correct and went back to file the return and the ITC amount was completely different.  In addition there was a Journal entry for the original amount of the filing which I couldn't change or undo.  I am happy with the $427.15 amount to file but I have no backup to show the original ITC amount and I can't figure out how to get the original report.  I have corrected the filing using the sales tax adjustment but need the original which I believe has exceptions.

HST filing

Hi sbilbe,


Welcome to Community!  QuickBooks online enables you to file and record your sales tax effortlessly.  It's important to review all associated information prior to filing your return to ensure it's accurate.  I'd be happy to provide more information, so you can accomplish your sales tax goals in a timely fashion!


When you unfile a tax return, related transactions will be listed under open returns.  Payments for the unfiled period won't be affected, as they'll be reapplied to the return once it's filed again.  Exceptions are created when transactions have been edited, deleted or added in a previous filing.  It's important to make note of these as there isn't a way to bring them back.  They become regular transactions for the periods they were recorded in.    To learn more about exceptions, click here.  Please note that journal entries associated with sales tax filings cannot be changed.


If you require additional assistance, I encourage you to speak with an accounting professional.  They'll be able to provide their expertise and best course of action, to ensure a positive outcome on your books.  If you don't have an accountant, we can help you locate a ProAdvisor in your local area.


Feel free to reach back out if you have other questions.  We'd be glad to help!
