We have an expense management application which we would like to integrate with QuickBooks.
My query is that in sandbox in case of UK and INR, I see tax in purchas but in case of US, I don't see the tax. So, in case of US do we have an option of tax?
Please see screenshots in the attached file.
Good to see you, Geetika Khanna.
I'm here to guide you.
The taxes are already part of your expenses. When you record it in the US version, the total amount you enter should include the tax amount. It's your vendor/supplier who will charge you a tax, not you charging it.
The only time you apply a tax into a bill is when you make it billable to your customer. You can turn on this option by following these steps:
Open or create again a bill. You'll notice that there's a Tax column. You can check it so that QuickBooks will calculate a tax.
In addition, UK version has an option to charge a tax into a bill or not. Though, I suggest to reach out to HMRC to verify if you'll need to apply additional taxes into a bill.
Also, you can ask additional assistance from an accounting experts or to your accountant. They can share more details about your taxes.

Hello Geetika Khanna,
I'd like to jump in and add some information about the tax column when creating expenses.
While VAT and Tax are different in terms of countries, you're able to see this column once you have turned on your sales tax. However, you're unable to mark the tax column when it isn't billable.
You'll want to add the tax amount manually as another line item in your expense transaction. Let me guide you on how to do it.
Once done, you can go to your Chart of Accounts and run an Account QuickReport to see the taxes.
To do so, here are the steps:
Please see attached screenshots below.
