Hi... we are starting to sell products that are subject to GST (our existing products are GST free). How do we invoice a customer that purchases both GST and Non-GST products? Does the customer tax code always override the individual item tax code? Any advice appreciated!
I have never used the customer tax code. The reason for this is that it is the supplier of goods and services who determines whether a supply is taxable not the recipient and this decision must be made on a sale by sale basis. Having said this the tax codes used on the invoice override the "customer tax code".
When invoicing I use multiple lines for various items and make a GST/FRE/EXP etc determination for each line. My experience, using the approach, is that the BAS related reports produce accurate results.
