Tax (HST) on Extra Charges as an Option
We have a situation where we need to charge HST on our club membership fee but not on a required pass through fee from an umbrella organization. It is a required fee for members. Currently it is implemented as an extra charge but there is no control over its tax status ie applying a tax. In this case there is no HST applied to the $35.00 fee but there is for our club membership fee.
Can you suggest a work around?
It would be great to have the extra charges fields have an option to apply taxes or not.
My issue is exporting to Quickbooks. It does not breakout the HST separately so I have to manually go in and change the invoice anyway so what good is the export to QB's

We are the same issue. Plus for Québec, GST and PST are charged only for residents of the province. All other registrants only pay the GST. Membership dues however, are based on province of residence. So we really need to be able to choose different tax rates and rules for membership and event registrations.

Yes we have the same issue. Membership fees attract HST, but our mandatory Insurance fee does not. This is a very big issue for us. WE really would like to be able to which extras get charged tax.
Is there a workaround yet???
No workaround yet, sorry. For automatic invoices (like event registration invoices) taxes are always calculated for the whole invoice.
I see the problem and will add this into our analysis queue, but this will take awhile as we are now busy with other changes.
I would be glad to here from others on this problem. Probably, there are other cases to consider.
