Hi Guys,

I'm trying to send an item (service type) to the Reckon account Hosted though RAH API, I send the price for this item. i.e 200.00 AUD. Then I send a sale receipt for a contact and this item. This contact made a payment 220.00 AUD (amount include GST) on our website and we send 220.00 in the amount field to the Reckon. Reckon added 22.00 AUD again as a GST to the Sale receipt and I can see 242.00 as a total. See the screen shot not 220.00

How can I send this recipe as amount 220.00 but still total be 220.00, not 242.00?
There is an option in the Sale receipt to tick this amount include GST. When I log in to the Reckon and ticked this one, the amount jumps to 242.00.

 

How can I fix it and say to Reckon API this amount is included tax, don't add tax to it again?

I really appreciate your help.

Thanks,

Hi Mehrnoosh,

When posting your sale receipt via the API, the rate/amount you post needs to be the net amount, so you would need post 200.00.  You can include the tax code and tax amount in the post if you like.   OR if the service item was created with GST tax code against it, just post $200.00 against that item and the sales receipt should add the tax code and tax amount on its own, as it will recognise that service item has GST.  that should solve the problem.

But I can't see any way possible to make the amount you post be accepted as gross.

Regards,
Shane.

Hi Mehrnoosh,

I beleive have found the QBXML tag to make the amounts you post include tax.  

Try adding this line to your QBMXL request, using your gross amount of $220.00.

true 

Sorry I didn't find this yesterday, I must have been blind.  I'm still kind of new to QBXML but I'm getting there.

Let me know how you go.

Regards,
Shane.


Correction: true only selects the Amounts include tax checkbox on the bill. All data should be posted as NET and then add the tax.
