Australian question re: GST and purchase orders
If you're a business in Australia, I hope you can help me!
Hi. I'm new and still learning. I've moved from MYOB Retail Manager, where, when I received goods on an invoice from a supplier, I used to enter the items in Goods Received, and entered the cost ex GST. Then Retail Manager would automatically add GST, and the total of the Goods Received order would match the total of the invoice to pay. In Lightspeed, when I receive items in on an invoice, I have to create a purchase order first (I think, please correct me if I'm wrong), then check them in. When I enter an item in a purchase order ex GST, Lightspeed doesn't automatically add the GST, therefore my invoice total for the purchase order is not the same as the invoice total from the supplier. I need these two figures to be the same for my back-end accounting. What can I do to fix this, or get it correct? Is the GST added at the time of "check-in" ??
