The dashboard shows the "GST Owing" amount as the amount accrued for the current quarter to date, regardless of what is sitting in the general ledger accounts still unpaid from previous quarters.
This is quite the opposite though when you look at PAYG W & super payable on the dashboard. Those amounts are reported as total amounts outstanding to date and include prior period amounts...and tie to the general ledger.
So why is GST owing reported so differently? Would it make sense to have the GST Owing amount tie to the general ledger balance so that the business owner can actually use the dashboard figures for planning? Or at least give them an option to have the dashboard report it this way?
Your treatment of GST owing as compared to PAYG W & Super Owing is NOT comparable and in my opinion, quite out of touch with what information a business owner would need.
