Linked account for tax

I changed over from GST registerred to Not Registered. I have changed all accounts to NT and have deleted all recurring transactions and bank feed rules to ensure no reference to GST. 

To allocate  any transactions I keep getting the error message that "You must specify a linked account for tax"

 

I cant get past this message - I have changed the status back to GST and I still have the same error message and even when I revert back to  non registered

 

I dont want to import transactions prior to Bank Feeds until I can resolve this.

Your help would be appreciated

  • Hi WRS109,

    Thanks for your post, and welcome to the Community Forum! Errors like this typically indicate that one or more tax codes (Australia) or GST codes (New Zealand) don't have linked accounts. To resolve this, ensure that each of your Tax/GST Codes has linked accounts assigned. You can do this by going to the Lists menu and selecting Tax/GST Codes. Please see this help article for more information: Error: "You must specify a linked account"
