Hi Ldecaul,

 

Currently, the ability to track sales tax or purchases in QuickBooks Online (QBO) US version is unavailable. You'll want to set up and use automated sales tax to automatically calculate your sales ax on your invoices and receipts.

 

This will automatically calculate the total tax rate based on your customer's tax-exempt status, where you sell and ship and your service or product's tax category.

 

Please check these articles for more information: 

You can also run and customize reports in QBO: Run Reports.

 

Feel free to let me know if you have additional questions. I'll be around to help.

Thanks for your response. In the last couple of weeks i have transferred 5 businesses from desktop to QBO international. In one  when I added taxes, it allowed me to track taxes on purchases as well. The next one I set up it only allows me to track pn sales. I cant work out the difference. The option to apply taxes to purchases just does not come up.

@Ldecaul 

Did you migrate them all to the same QBO version (i.e same country) and plan (e.g QBO Plus)?
