Recording a Donation

My sole trader business is below the GST threshhold and not registered for GST.

 

I recently donated a finished item to a charity auction run by a registered charity. The donated item consisted of approximately$800 worth of stock (retail value), and $200 worth of assembly which I would normally charge as a service. As such I have created an invoice which correctly reflects all the stock and service line items, totalling $1000.

 

I essentailly envisage paying the invoice from the "Donations made" account but I'm not sure how to do this or if its even the right way to go about it?

 

I have previously donated vouchers and am familiar with the process for that. I was tempted to record the sale as being paid using a donated $1000 voucher but wasn't sure if that was cheating?

 

Appreciative of any advice!

I don't see any difference between a voucher and a specific donation and I would agree with your methodology. In the event of an audit it would show that you have claimed the retail price and the standard assembly charge.
