I can help you track the sales tax on purchases as a liability (to be paid later), abr_ora.
You can create a Current Tax Liability account to tack the total amount of taxes collected but not yet paid to the tax agency.
For more details about creating a new account in the Chart of Accounts, you can check out this article: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1876266.
Once done, create a bill in which you will be tracking sales tax and choose the liability account you've set up. You'll need to enter the amount of sales tax in the Amount column and this will be calculated manually.
Then, you can see the Current Tax Liability account that has been accrued by going to the Chart of Accounts.
I have a link here that contains articles about managing Taxes/GST: https://community.intuit.com/browse/quickbooks-online-intl-taxes.
Please reply to this post if you need anything else with tracking sales tax. I'm here to help.
Hello there, abr_ora.
You'll need to choose the Out of scope of Tax option since we manually created the Current Tax Liability account to tack the total amount of taxes collected.
