GST return NZ invoice basis

Can anyone please help me.  I am trying to prepare my GST return and something is not right.  The return is not picking up my journals?  We are a import business so a lot of my invoices are GST only paid to customs.  Should this be returned in the GST return?

Hi @Dahe66, can you attach a screenshot of the transaction which includes Customs GST? 


MYOB has a help topic for NZ here.

Hi @Dahe66

Are you processing the GST on imports to the adjustments box, on an purchase? This will ensure they appear on the GST return. Journals do normally appear as well - as long as you are using the GST code - and not coding directly to the GST paid code.
