GST tax name

Hi, I am having problem with the GST tax name on the sales invoice since 3 March 2023.

It does not show the tax rate (8%) when the invoice was being created. Does anyone having this problem? or any solution? 

Currently invoice shown as SR. (no tax rate shown on the invoice)


Please help!

GST tax name

We haven’t received any reports concerning tax rate that doesn’t show up when the invoice is created, @AGNES1408. No worries, I’ve got some actions you can take to resolve the issue.

I’ve managed to log in to QuickBooks Online (QBO) Singapore to run a test. I verified that it works as intended. The tax rate was displayed on the invoice perfectly. Did you receive a prompt or error message? This helps me determine the cause and can provide you accurate resolution.

An online platform like QBO uses the browser’s cache to run faster. However, this can sometimes become corrupted, which can affect program functionalities and lead to unusual behavior, such as missing information.

In this case, I’d recommend accessing your account through an incognito or private window as the first troubleshooting solution. Incognito Mode is an online privacy feature that prevents your browsing history from being stored. Here are the shortcut keys below for quick navigation:


  • Google Chrome: Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Safari 11 or newer: + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Microsoft Edge: Ctrl + Shift + P

From there, go to the Invoices page and check your Tax section. You can delete your entry and recreate it if need be. If you’re able to see it, get back to your regular browser and clear its cache. Doing this helps the program to run smoothly. You can also use other supported browsers as an alternative.

Once you’re ready to record the payment and its deposit to ensure the transaction matches your bank statement, check out these articles for the complete process:


Moreover, here’s an article to guide you through how to file and pay the Tax/GST you owe using the program: File and pay Tax/GST.

If I can help in any way, don’t hesitate to fire off a message. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Take care always!

hi @MadelynC , thank you for your reply. 


What I mean is when we select the GST code when creating invoice (1st screenshot as below), it is shown as at SR (8%). If the invoice was dated Feb 2023, it was shown as 2nd screenshot below. Wondering is there anyway to get back the code from 2nd screenshot.

Hi All,

I facing this problem too. I found out it's auto changed to 8% tax (8%SR) & (8%TX) in Jan to Feb 2023. But from Mar 2023, the code can't use anymore, I had to key in (SR) or (TX) then can move on. I ignore it because I can see the total 8% deduction are correct in Invoice & Purchase. Is it correct if I don't do any changes ?
