Tax summary and tax detail report


Client is using Reckon Accounts Hosted desktop. I am running tax reports for September quarter.

My Tax liability and tax summary reports give me the same amount payable.

Tax detail reports has a different amount payable.

GST on sales is the same on all three reports. The discrepancy is in the GST on purchases. Tax detail report has a lot higher amount for GST on purchases than tax summary and tax liability reports.

I have run all three reports on the same basis (cash) and for the same period.

Anybody has run into the same issue?

Thanks, Maria

    Hi Maria

    Yes, this is a known issue that happens when there are negative &/or mixed line tax codes in a transaction. It is due to the system trying to breakdown the 10% across multiple/conflicting lines. Disregard the detail reports in these scenarios as the summaries aren't affected by this issue & will be correct 😁
