 Hi Jmryan,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community for support. I'll be happy to share more info about receiving and entering a GST refund cheque. 

 

If you file your return using the correct process, QB would have to create an A/R for the Receiver General. You'd need to got the Receive Payments window, choose the Receiver General and enter the amount. Here's a helpful article with more info on filing sales tax in QB. 

 

In case you need further assistance, you're more than welcome to contact our support team. Feel free to ask questions. I'm here to help.

Hello @Jmryan ,

 

As @JamesM has said, if you file using the built-in QB tools for handling GST, when you filed your return where you were owed a refund, QB would have created a Receivable in your A/R register.  What it does is take the name of your GST Vendor in your Vendor List and appends it with ' - Receivable.  For example, my Vendor name is Receiver General - GST and the first time I filed a GST return where I was owed a refund, QB created the customer name Receiver General - GST - Receivable and automatcially posts the refund amount.

 

Then when you receive the refund, you simply receive a payment to that customer and deposit to the bank.

 

If you don't use QB's built-in features for filing GST and are doing your own thing, then you would have had to set up the receivable yourself at the time that you made your entries for the tax filing; DR Accounts Receivable (Receiver General Receivable) and DR GST/HST Payable, to clear your GST account to the end of that period.

 

If, by chance, you are not using QB's tax filing features, I highly recommend it.  It is very slick and takes all the work out of doing it manually.

Thank you James, one note for anyone else, when you receive payment for Receiver General for GST refund an invoice does not show to pay.  Click on AR account pull down menu and change the account from Accounts Recievable to GST Receivable.....TADA there is the amount to receive.
