Setting up HST in Quickbooks and Simply Accounting for Charities and Qualifying Non-Profit Organizations

Under the old GST rules, charities and qualifying non-profit organizations could claim a rebate of 50% of the GST paid on purchases. It was relatively easy to set up Quickbooks and Simply Accounting to track the 50% refundable portion and record the non-refundable portion in the expense on each purchase by manipulating the settings for the GST and PST tax codes.
