Accounting for GST on brokerage?

Post by tentimestwenty » 23 Feb 2008 05:59

How do I enter an invoice for brokerage that contains GST as a line item? What account should this go into? Basically I have an invoice from UPS which has:

Duty Amount
Customs GST
Brokerage GST
Disbursement Fee

You need to set up a Tax Code that is All GST.

In your Tax Rates window, create a new code for this rate. I called it "I" for Import GST, for example. Do not set a percentage rate ('cause it's not a percentage of the amount), but below the percentage set sup is a button labeled "ALL GST". Click on that.

Then when you enter that line item, use the "I" tax code and it will allocate the amount to GST only.
