GST Problem

I am having a problem with Reckon today when preparing GST reports. All three reports that I am running give me a different GST to be reclaimed amount. I have run a Tax Liability Report, a Tax Detail Report and also the Simplified BAS/IAS and all three give me a completely different number. Who can this be?

    It may be a date range issue

    I wish it was that simple but unfortunately it isn't. I have picked the same date range for all reports and the GST received amount is exactly the same in each report whereas the GST Paid is different. But thank you for your suggestion.

    Have you tried a tax summary report?

    Are you running the reports under the same accounting method i.e. Cash Basis or Accrual Basis?

    Thank you all so far. I have checked that I am running cash in all three options and the date period is the same in all. The Tax Summary report gives me the same information as the Tax Liability Summary but neither are the same as the Tax Liability or Simplified Bas/IAS for. I do notice though when I run the tax summary report there is an amount under Net GST-P. What is that? And it is not the difference between the reports.

    Check the codes in the Simplified BAS, drill down on the different amounts and compare

    Historically I've found that if the Tax Summary (TS) & The tax Liability (TL) reports don't match, there is a data integrity issue, so resort all lists and rebuild the data file, if necessary create a portable backup and restore.
    If the TS & TL match but differ from the Balance Sheet (BS) then this is generally data entry error ie ATO BAS Payment allocated incorrectly.

    On a cash basis, the Tax Detail reports are sometimes incorrect if there are discounts or part payments involved as the system tries to calculate the GST at 10% still.  Therefore I will sometimes run them but never rely on them alone.

    I always use the Tax Summary report – This one will always calculate correctly even in the above cases.  The GST sections of the Simplified BAS should match with this summary, provided the basis (cash v accrual) & date range are the same.

     

    NB - Check whether you are reporting the Tax Summary & Tax Liability reports in net or gross

    The Tax Detail is only/always generated in net so if your TS/TL are set to gross, that could be the problem!
