Switch tax off facility

QuickBooks Team


Hello, @morestead.


Turning off the tax feature or switching to the old tax is irreversible in QuickBooks. As a workaround, you can change the default tax rate to No VAT. Once you create a transaction, you will no longer be prompted to enter a VAT code.


Here's how: 

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Choose the Account and Settings button. 
  3. Click the Advanced tab, then hit Accounting. 
  4. In the Default tax rate selection drop-down, select No VAT.
  5. Tap Save, then Done


I've attached an article about managing taxes and other related topics.
