Hey malikzeen1,

 

Having customers throughout the country is a positive thing for businesses of all sizes, but it comes with special considerations for sales tax under the separate provincial agencies. QuickBooks Online is built to streamline sales tax tracking, so you can easily set up a different province with common default settings. I'll be happy to help you set this up.

 

Setting up taxes for an additional province is just a few easy steps:

  1. From the left menu, select Taxes.
  2. Select Sales Tax. (Tip: If you use payroll in QuickBooks Online, you may need to select Sales Tax as opposed to Payroll Tax.)
  3. Select Manage sales tax.
  4. Select Add tax.
  5. Under What type of tax do you want to add? select Add next to the provincial option.

This sets up the new tax code with the most common tracking settings. Check out this great article to learn more: How to set up a new sales tax code

 

If you're unsure how you should charge sales tax on your invoices between provinces, your accountant is the best person to help. They'll help you record taxes accurately to ensure your returns are all filed properly. You can easily invite your accountant as a user to approach this together. To search for a pro in your area, simply head to the My Accountant tab in QuickBooks Online then click on Find a pro to help.
