GST (New Zealand)

We have just purchased from iTunes, EasyBooks for Mac , Version 4.2.19 (15020201) having previously had EasyBooks for iPad.

On neither system have we been able to enter the GST inclusive figures for sales and purchases and have the system calculate the GST content to deduct the GST content to obtain the GST exclusive figure for our accounts.

We are currently using the GST exclusive category and our accountant then has to make the GST adjustment which means we incur additional costs with our Accountant when the system should be doing it automatically.

Can you please help us to sort this problem out.

    Hi Theresa,

    I can definitely help!

    Both the iOS and Mac versions of Easy Books have the feature that you can enter all values inclusive of tax on a permanent or temporary basis.

    If you would prefer to enter all values as inclusive of GST then go to the app's settings. On iOS, tap Settings in the menu screen, on Mac use the app preferences (Cmd+, or use the menu bar under Easy Books > Preferences). Look for the setting labelled "Amount Entry" and set this to "Always Incl Tax".

    If you normally use values excluding tax (which we do in UK), leave the global setting set to "Automatic". For the times when you want to override the behaviour and enter a sales amount as the inclusive tax figure, use the method I'll describe next. On iOS, go to the sales form and tap the action button at the bottom and choose "Show Incl Tax". Alternatively, tap and hold the amount field to toggle between showing excl and incl tax amounts. On Mac, open the sale form and click on the cog at the top of the form. From there choose "Show Incl GST". Amounts on the form will update to show the inclusive figures.

    I hope that helps,
