Using QBO, new customers created are assigned "use default tax code."
I am in BC, where often PST and GST are charged. I have an "S" standard tax code, charging both taxes, but some items should be taxes GST only.
Imported data creates A new customer with a new invoice. For my business, 99% of invoices should be GST only, so I am required to manually edit each item on each invoice change the tax code from "S" to "G."
How do I change the default code from "S" to "G"?
I have followed many solutions attempts without success. I don't see to have the "related tasks" the "Sales Tax" area. or have the "Edit sales tax settings".
Thanks for connecting with us in the Community. QuickBooks is a powerful program that offers a variety of tools and features that help you streamline your business. I'll be happy to share more information about setting up a default tax rate on your account.
In order to set up/change the default tax code on your account, you'll have to make the changes from the Account and Settings menu. To do this, click on the Gear icon > Account and Settings > navigate to the Advanced tab > look for the Accounting section > change your Default tax rate and hit Save and Done.
Going forward, you'll start to see the desired default tax code. Give this a try and let me know how you make out. I'll be here in case you have other questions. Otherwise, have a great rest of the week!
