Entering COVID 19 Cash Flow Boost

Hi,

I can't work out how to enter the Cash Flow Boost credit the ATO have paid us for our March quarterly BAS. I am aware there are many posts on here regarding this and I have looked through numerous ones on how to do this, but I still can't quite work it out for our circumstances.

We received $10000 into our integrated tax account. Our GST and PAYG liabilities came to less than the $10000 therefore we received a refund amount into our actual bank account also.

I am using Reckon Accounts Premier Desktop version. I don't do journal entries at all. I usually enter our GST liabilities via Manage Tax and PAYG via Pay Liabilities.  As we don't have to pay them like we normally would, I am now not sure how to enter them so that they don't appear in our bank account, except for the refund.

I have already set up an Other Income account, non taxable for the CFB credit , as suggested in other members' posts.

Many different ways - however, you could make a new bank account called clearing account, and pay your BAS from this account. You could then make a deposit into this new bank account and put it to an Income account called cash flow boost. Then transfer the balance from the new account to the working bank account. This will put 10000 into the income account, the clearing bank account will be zero and the deposit for the refund will appear in the normal account.
