My organization is based in Canada. A separate Provincial Sales Tax(PST) is levied in addition to the GST. How do I record the two taxes together in Zoho Books?

If your organization is based in Canada, a separate Provincial Sales Tax(PST) is collected in addition to the GST.

In this case, you will have to create a tax group. Follow the steps below to create a new tax group,

  • Click on the Gear Icon and select Taxes.
  • Click on + New Tax Group option under the New Tax drop-down, placed on top right of the taxes window.
  • Before you add a tax group, you need to have taxes already added.
  • Enter the name of the tax group and select the taxes that needs to be added.
  • Finally, click on Save to create the tax group.

If one of the taxes is a non value added tax: In some provinces, tax on purchases cannot be reclaimed. In this case, the tax cannot be treated as a liability but an expense.
