How do I record GST F7 filing in Quickbooks? It's an additional filing to IRAS for correcting errors made in 'original' filed GST Return (F5) for previous quarter/(s).
In most cases. it will involve another payment or refund to/from IRAS for GST amount. Submission of original GST Return (F5) still in place so I guess calling in Support Centre to re-open the filed return is not workable as the payment/refund based on F5 is valid and well-recorded in QBO. Any other solution?
Thanks for posting here, @Chipndale.
I have some information about the GST F7 filing. While this option is unavailable in QBO, you'll want to file your F7 directly to your tax agency. Visit your tax website for instructions.
On the other hand, I recommend consulting your accountant first to make sure you're recording it correctly in QuickBooks.

We would definitely be filing F7 directly to our tax agency but my question is how do we record the F7 filing in QBO? Are you trying to imply we have to bypass Tax module and manually pass the double entries using Journal since this option is not supported by QBO currently?
Thanks for getting back here, @Chipndale.
Since QuickBooks Online (QBO) currently no option to file GST F7, as a workaround, you can record the amendment by unfiling the GST F5 and file again containing the correct info.

If we do unfiling of GST F5 and re-file again for F7, the payment/refund recorded for F5 will be reversed as well I believed, no? In this case, how do we then record the 2 sums of payment and/or refund (different dates) for F5 & F7 in Tax Module? We can't be lumping the 2 sums together and record as 1 payment because of different processing date/month. Please advise.
Thanks for your prompt reply, Chipndale.
You have the option to manually delete the refund/payment in the Payments tab.
To record the 2 sums of payment/refund with different dates for F5 & F7, here's how:
For recording a refund, go to the Returns tab and under the Filed returns section, select the View summary drop-down menu and choose Record refund. I've got this sample screenshot for a visual reference:
