Scroll Prev Top Next More

The instructions below explain how to set up billing NZ invoices to handle billing NZ GST. This provides a method to identify invoices where NZ GST has been billed. You should check the statutory reporting and lodgement requirements with your accountant as you may need to adjust your BAS reporting manually.

1.Add an NZ GST Code GZ via Tools > Setups > Tax Codes, (type = exclude from GST Reports, so it reports like tax code X in GST Sessions).

2.Ensure GZ code is set against the currency in currency setup. Go to Tools > Setups > Currency.

You will see some letters underlined in the field names within the header, eg. Cust#. Using Alt+ the underlined letter will jump you to the field beside that heading.

5.GST Sessions – transactions will behave like X non reportable, and will not impact worksheet figures for reporting GST in Australia. However, the By Tax tab will display the total value of transactions and GST for tax code GZ for the reporting period.

6.The GZ values will be included in the general ledger GST Collected Liability account. Users will need to use the By Tax tab in the GST Session, to establish the GZ values, then enter a journal to move these values from the GST Collected Liability account to a new GST Collection (New Zealand) liability account. This is done each GST reporting period.
