Paid Taxes

If I’ve paid tax for a previous tax year should I add this to the business expenses section under TAXES on quickbooks? It then makes my expenses seem really high and it goes into the section of allowed expenses under OTHER BUSINESS EXPENSES. I just want to know the correct way of doing this whether you mark paid taxes to HMRC to personal on quickbooks or put it down as expense in the taxes section. 


Re: Paid Taxes

Hello, Arabella.


For recording purposes, if these payments are for taxes, you can choose the Taxes as for the categorisation. However, these are VAT payments, then you can choose VAT Paid for the category.z.PNG
