    Hi Shi

    You enter this via a Liability Chq (under the Employees dropdown menu > Payroll Taxes & Liabilities > Create Custom Liability Payments)

    Select/enter the applicable date range (eg the month or quarter) & enter the amount being paid for the relevant liability (In your case, it should show $ 4,000) then click on Create:

    This will generate the prefilled Liability Chq for the PAYGW (I like to enter the relevant period in the Memos):

    Click on the Expenses tab & select/enter your GST account & the refundable (paid) amount as a NEGATIVE number:

    Click on the Recalculate button at the bottom & the Liab Chq will net correctly to $ 2,000

    You will get this popup warning. Just tick the checkbox & click OK:
