Trust name on all documents since change to STP

Since changing over to STP I have had to change the Company name in the system to match our ABN which in our case is a Trust Name. How can I place our Business name in Quickbooks Hosted so that this shows on all payslips, remitances etc.?

My STP would not work unless the Trust name was in the Company Name and Legal Name fields. STP is working perfectly but now all the staff and suppliers are getting all documents in the Trust name that does not relate to the Business name at all so they don't know who is paying them.

Can you please advise me how to fix this without it effecting my STP uploads.

HI Caroline.  There is a pretty easy fix for this.  You will need to customise each of your forms.  With the legal name now appearing on your forms, change the font size to something smaller than usual.  Then add a Text Box above the legal name and insert the trading name inside this text box.  If you are using personalised stationery, you might have a bit more of a problem trying to do this.

In my case now, I have the legal name added in a text box, but if STP requires it to be the dominant name, I will have to revert to what I have said above when I have to use STP.
