Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Since I started my business, and I'm using quickbooks pro 2009 by the way, the sales tax liability has changed several times. I now collect sales tax at the 7.775%rate. The problem is that on some clients, when creating an invoice, an old sales tax rate comes up and is added to the invoice, not the current tax rate!!! Unless I catch and change it, it gets mailed to the client with the incorrect amount due. My bookkeeper says there is nothing I can do to correct this. Is that true. She says it will always default to the original tax rate. That sounds nuts. Do you know how I could delete all old tax rates? please help, thank you very much in advance for your time

First of all we are sorry for the delay in contacting you.
It is important that you need to change the rate of tax in order to let quickbooks pro calculate taxes as per the new rates. Here is how to do this:

  1. All you need to do is go to the item list.
  2. Find the current Sales Tax item
  3. Double-click on it.
  4. Change the Rate.
That's all. You are done.
One thing more, this will not effect past entries of Sales Receipts or Invoices. Also, the date matters. All the receipts that are printed after the change will have the new rates. So, change the rates only on a fresh day.

Tell me what happens. Please feel free to contact or chat with us.
We are available at your service.
Have a nice day,

You have to create a different item for each charge. eg maintenace fee, garbage collection, assesment etc. You bill each client with the diferrent items. You can have QuickBooks automatically charge for recurring items by memorizing the transaction.

Posting progress payments

If you are paying your sales tax by invoice date - the payments will not affect your liablity. ie you owe the whole amount of sales tax as of the date of the invoice. If you are paying sales tax as of the time of payment. You will owe sales tax at the time you receive payment.
Since you are using progress invoicing, the sales tax would be come due at the time of the invoice. If you are just receiving payments, you would receive payments (as you would with any customer, and not invoice until time of completion. You would just need to make sure that your preference for sales tax due date is set to Invoice date, not time of payment.

I am assuming that you are reffering to a sales tax check. There are a couple of ways it can be corrected.

One is to remove the cleared checkmark from the write check in the bank account register, delete the check, and create the new check using the Pay Sales tax, then mark the new check as cleared in the register to keep the reconcile correct. The other way is to delete the second check, as the PAP suggested, and do a sales tax liability adjustment.
Either way, I HIGHLY, HIGHLY..( did I mention I REALLY suggest) you make a backup of the data first!
That way, if things go wrong, you restore the backup and you are no worse off than you are right now.

Credit memo's

Hi Marli...

First I cannot answer your question specifically (what you have to do in Quickbooks) because my use of Quickbooks is further back in time. On the other hand (I assume) you are trying to do this to suppress income (give credits back to your customers) prior to filing a return. Your "accounting" problem (not quickbooks) is the account you are putting them in....cost of sales?? or elsewhere...refund? Think that through and you have your answer I suspect.
