GST credit adjustment journal



have had to write off a couple of bad debts and I can't seem to work our how to journal these to show up on the GST return sheet.

Wasn't large amounts but need to get this right as I'm due to be audited by IRD again shortly and don't want to give them any reason to get on my case.

Hi there @HWCS

Are these in your debtors ledger? If so, you would process credits against these invoices and code the credit to bad debts (including GST) This then would show up in your next GST return. Bad debts unless extremely large are not normally shown in the GST adjustments box - they just go through to reduce the GST on Sales.
