I am just looking at the trial version and trying to set up my accounts.  In the expenses list, many items don't allow GST as the tax code, but only NCG. I want to use GST or FRE or NT as per my accountant's requirements.   How do I do this and why aren't these options available?

Hi Debbie,

Which version are you currently trialing? Reckon One or Reckon Accounts Business? (You've tagged both products in the post)

Reckon is not like the MYOB product, where it uses the one code for income and expenses.

Reckon uses
GST for income
FRE for GST Free income
NCG for Expenses that have GST.
NCF for Expenses that are GSt Free
CAG for Capital purchase that have GST.
CAF for Capital purchase that have GST Free.

You need to use the appropriate code in Reckon.

I'm using Reckon One.  Although my next and major issue is with invoicing.  It appears the last lot of questions about customisable invoices was some time ago and it appears that this service is still not fixed.  I need to be able to customise invoices for different companies and without that facility, I'll need to check some other program options.

Debbie. Yes you most probably will. All the software systems entail compromises. I use them all so I know. Just be very careful about why you are changing. The grass is not always greener
