I am trying to lodge my BAS but the simplified BAS produced by Reckon does not show GST Free Purchases G14. It does show GST Free Sales (G3) but not purchases. I am using the CASH accounting method. Please help

Hi Justine,

Welcome to the Reckon Community.

Firstly, you should check with your accountant on matters concerning tax.  Generally, GST Free Purchases are reported at G11 - Other acquisitions.  If the purchase is of a capital nature, then it is assigned to G10 - Capital acquisitions.  

The G14 field is used in the BAS Calculation Sheet but does not form part of the BAS Lodgement form.  

Hope this helps.
