When a user sends retainers from BillQuick to QuickBooks, they show up in the tax reports in QuickBooks as part of line item 101 for HST.
The journal entries are included in the sales line (line 101) on the HST returns. All amounts should be included on line 101 if they affect an income or expense account. However, provincial sales taxes, supplies to which no GST/HST was charged (such as zero-rated and exempt supplies), interest income and unearned income (retainers) are not to be included.
There is no simple way to single out the retainers in QuickBooks so the issue must be resolved by making journal entries in QuickBooks
