  1. Sales tax report with ALL pertinent categories to pay taxes please!

    I've switched from desktop to online version of QB and I'm noticing there is only 1 sales tax report and it doesn't list Gross Sales, Non-Taxables Sales, and then the result. This makes it very difficult to run a report to pay B&O taxes for taxable, gross sales and non-taxable sales. Why does the desktop version have this and not QBO?

      • Ability to use Quick Method on GST HST for Canada Customers

        In CANADA we have other method for paying HST/GST. Quick Method for small Biz(s).

        • validate HST registration

          When paying a Canadian vendor, it's important to know whether the vendor has a valid HST number or not. Some vendors charge HST even when they are not registered to collect it. The CRA has a web site for easy verification of HST numbers here: https://www.businessregistration-inscriptionentreprise.gc.ca/ebci/brom/registry/registryPrompt.do

          The user case is this:

          Small Business Ltd (SBL) engages an independent contractor, who bills monthly for services. When SBL receives the first invoice, the bookkeeper sets up the Vendor, including the name and HST number. They click a button and the system checks the CRA web site and confirms the HST number. If…

          • FIX THE SALES TAX LIABILITY REPORT!!!!!!!!!!

            The Sales Tax Liability report in QBO is a disaster. The report does not even reconcile to the companies P&L. This report MUST include non-taxable sales broken out by tax location. I'm a little stunned that Intuit got this wrong in the design of QBO and to add insult to injury it has not yet been corrected. I sincerely hope Intuit has something in the works to remedy this error and it is being fast tracked through implementation; I do not want to have inform my clients they need to change back to Desktop after already moving them to QBO.

            • Sales tax at item level

              Being able to set a single tax rate for an entire invoice is not going to work for many people. I know that you can define a combined rate but that is not good enough. Not all items are going to be taxed at the same rate. Some items may be subject to state and local taxes while others are subject only to state. Rates should be able to be set at the item level.

                • Allow Editing or Deleting of VAT Codes or Agencies for India Customers

                  There should be an option to delete unwanted tax codes which are redundant and tax agencies which are created by mistake (ofcourse which are not used for filing)

                  • Enhance options for GST and HST for charities who are Canada Customers

                    GST and HST for charities and nonprofits on your online version. it is difficult for charities and nonprofits to account for the various % rebates available from the federal and provincial governments on purchases. It appears your standalone version has this capability although I have not used it.

                    • Allow me to edit or change the agency name associated with a sales tax rate

                      I am a ProAdvisor that prepares sales tax returns for my clients. Sometimes they create new sales tax items and assign the wrong agency name. I need to be able to reassign the sales tax rate to the new agency without creating a new sales tax rate.

                      • Update HST GST PST QST Tax rates for Meal / Meals restrictions in ITC claims for Canadian Accounts.

                        Be able to add custom Cdn tax rates to account for only 50% of most GST/HST being allowable for meals and entertainment! H-ME for 50% of the 13% and G-ME for 50% of the 5% to avoid having to calculate the amounts outside of the entry and then bring in adjusted figures. Please!

                        • Using a Journal Entry to directly change taxes

                          The ability to adjust taxes directly with a journal entry like in Quickbooks Enterprise/Pro. When we record our sales and our prepaid amortization we used to record the GST in the same journal entry. Just by enter the GST amount directly into our GST account and it would show up on our remittance. Now I have to go to Sales Tax after doing my journal entry to record the taxes.

                            • Editable Tax rates

                              Please make tax rates and Group taxes editable. For example when setting up the new sales tax rate for Saskatchewan by being able to view an existing tax rate I could use that view to allow me to create a new tax rate but with the same settings. I made a mistake adding a new tax rate and because of that I now can't get rid of it out of my list. Makes it tough to manage the tax rates and wanting to make list easy to read and understand.

                                • Add a 'Class' to an Adjustment to Sales Tax Payment

                                  When you post an Adjustment to a Sales Tax Payment you cannot enter a 'Class' for the Adjustment. For example, our counties and state round taxes to the nearest dollar. They also allow for vendor fees when you pay your taxes early. Currently, there is no way to assign a 'class' to this adjustment. As a result, when I run my 'Class' reports I have dangling amounts of $0.35 listed as "uncategorized." It's really irritating because they never go away, and there is no way to fix this part of the transaction.

                                    • use tax

                                      There needs to be a better way to customize sales tax reporting per state. My state provides discounts and other changes to totals that create a situation in which my quickbooks estimates never match the sales tax I actually owe.

                                      Also there is no easy way to track use tax that is needed to be paid on purchase. It would be great to be able to check a "pay use tax on this item" box next to an item on a purchase order that would then populate a use tax owed report.

                                      • Please create a method to file GST returns directly from Quickbooks.

                                        Please create a method to file GST returns directly from Quickbooks. The current method is very cumbersome and the reports aren't helpful if I have have to enter every invoice.

                                        • Please add drop down for payment of sales tax agency

                                          Please add a drop down for agency name so we can choose an agency to pay rather than click on agency to record a payment
