HST Paid on Purchases Detail

This question is not answered

Hi everyone,

My accountant is requesting that when I supply him with my files for his work that he requires the HST, we've

paid on purchases, in detail form. I use Chart 2316 for this and when we click on it on the balance sheet it only displays

the totals paid. Any thoughts on why it doesn't show the detail??  Is there a setting that has been changed to turn it off.

I am using Sage 50 Premium 2013.

  • I am not sure what report Chart 2316 refers to.

    If you double-clicked the HST Paid on Purchases account, you should have ended up with the General Ledger report.  This is probably what the accountant wants.  It should have columns for Date, Comment, Source, JE#, Debits, Credits and Balance.

    If they are not all there, right-click the column headers and put them on.  Or you can select the menu Modify, Report Options and rerun the report with the Template <Default report options> instead of <Last used report options>.

    If this isn't what your accountant wants, can you be more specific about what is on it?  Maybe you could ask him what report in program he is looking for.

  • Hi Richard,  Thanks for the input. I'll try to explain this better. When I copy off the files for the accountant and he opens them up he goes and looks at the balance sheet. One of the items on there is the HST Tax paid on purchases. When he clicks on it the page opens but only shows the totals. He says it should show the details of the payments, to whom, amount and so on. Apparently it used to work that way. I try it here and it does the same thing. Now I can go to Reports and open the Tax file and see the payments but there not segregated to the various vendors. So I hope this makes my problem a little more understandable. Any help or ideas greatly appreciated.


  • Hi Keith

    If the information is not there then you need to go back to the original purchase invoices to see if the information is actually on the invoice.  My guess is that the tax code was set up properly. 

    If the journal entry on a posted invoice does not show the tax, then the tax code is not set up as refundable. You will need to correct that for the future and post manual corrections for the past.
