Ta for getting back to me.
I think the best way is for me to show you two recent tax invoices with the same items but 2 different amounts. In invoice 2605 the tax/sales invoice correctly shows total of $153.75. This is made up of $140 for the item sold ($140 includes GST) plus P&H of $13.75 (this figure also includes GST).
In today’s invoice 2609 for exactly the same item the tax/sales invoice seems to calculate GST on $153.75 (ie $15.38) and adds it to the invoice so the total becomes $169.13. The correctly calculated amounts, as per invoice 2605 are Total $153.75 with GST of $13.98.
I have just noticed other differences between the invoices in terminology which I think backs up my original theory. Correct invoice 2605 shows TOTAL for $153.75 and below that INCLUDES GST 10% vs invoice 2609 showing SUBTOTAL for $153.75 and where GST figure is displayed this says GST 10%. The change in terminology is a give away.
As I said, I hadn’t noticed that before. When I generated the invoice this morning I knew it was wrong as I was used to the right amount - I just had not had my morning coffee to get the brain cells firing.
Any thoughts on what I might do to correct it - or is it a global thing?
I’ve edited out customer info in invoices attached for privacy reasons.
Hope you can help.
PS In this case the customer has already paid by Paypal, so I don’t need to bill him, but he will want a tax invoice for his next BAS.
