Hi Stacey

Preferably, you should setup a new Payroll Item & (Sub)Account for this Subsidy & have the Subsidy received post back to it

Where are you located?

I'm looking for step by step instructions.  I'm not sure i understand

We are located in Helensvale , Gold Coast
You'd probably be best to seek out an Accredited Reckon partner in your area who can set this up for you & give you some guidance on how to track it correctly.

Unfortunately, I'm in WA so a bit far for me lol but have a look on here:

thanks for your help.   I had a look at the map and there is no one in the gold coast or Brisbane that can help me.  
Hi Stacey

I’ve just had a look too.
Some just show QLD & don’t mention their suburb which can often mean they service statewide so I’d recommend filtering for your specific program & selecting one or two to get in touch with as I’m sure they’ll be able to help.
