Record payment for pst

Hi there, 


Filing your sales tax is an important part of running your business. QuickBooks Online helps to make this process easy for you!


Filing sales tax is a four part process. First, prepare your sales tax return in QuickBooks Online. Second, submit your return to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Third, close your filing period in QuickBooks Online. Finally, record your payment to or refund from the CRA. I'd be happy to explain how you can record your PST payment. 


To see a list of steps and instructions, take a look at this helpful Community article: File sales tax


This article explains that in order to make a payment, you'll first have to follow the process of filing your sales tax in QuickBooks Online. Once you've done that, follow these steps to record a payment: 


1. Choose Filed from the All returns drop-down
2. Select Record payment from the drop-down in the Action column.
3. Select the appropriate Payment type. Tip: Select Payment if the number is positive and Refund is if the number is negative
4. Enter the Payment date, or the date which you paid the CRA or Revenu Québec
5. (Optional) Use the Memo to include anything you want to remember about this payment
6. Once you make the payment, you'll see it in your Account History under the date you recorded the payment.


This should get you back on track. If you have any other questions, feel free to get in touch with our support team here

Hello ReJoyz2020. It's great to have you chime in on this thread. I can see the importance of being able to record your refund and I'll be happy to give you a hand by showing you how to do that. QuickBooks offers a user-friendly interface which makes it easy to navigate and complete your work. Here's how to record a tax refund: 

  1. Open your sales tax center by clicking on the Taxes tab. 
  2. Make sure you're on the Sales Tax tab and Returns tab. 
  3. Find the relevant filing. 
  4. Click the option in the Action column (it should be Record Payment). 
  5. Select Refund and then fill in the refund information. 
  6. Click Save

Give these steps a try and let me know how you make out. I've got your back. :)
