GST refund date recorded wrongly and it cannot be edited.

Hence my bank recon is out by the amount. Can I simply "delete" the recorded refund? How are the impacts on the filing of GST?

If deleted this "refund", would I be able to enter again with the right date (18 July 2019) and match the corresponding period for the correct quarter Apr - July 2019 tax filing??? Kindly assist, many thanks!

Hi there, QB Beginner.

Yes, you're correct. There isn't a direct way to edit a GST refund. If it was recorded incorrectly, you might want to delete and recreate it. This should not affect your return since the refund was made after filing. 

Here's how to delete a refund:

  1. Go to Taxes from the left menu. 
  2. Select the Payments tab. 
  3. Locate the refund from the list and click the arrow next to View. 
  4. Select Delete. 

I'd also recommend consulting your accountant to make sure everything is recorded properly.

Have deleted and yes, it didn't affect my return. And I was also able to re-enter the refund with the correct date :)
Thank you so much for your help!
