If you are using MoneyWorks V6 in BC you will now have to convert back to GST & PST (see previous article) and then add the GST &  PST to your invoices. If you were using MoneyWorks prior to July 1, 2010, you most likely have the appropriate fields on the form, In any case you will either have to modify them or add them to your invoice form using Forms Designer. At the bottom of the invoice you will need the following calculation fields:

HasPST field

The HasPST field is an invisible (does not print) calculation field that triggered the display of the PST taxes. It is usually located at the top of form around the date & invoice no. Select show Invisibles under the Options icon at the top of the Forms Designer window to find it. If it is not their create the calculation field as shown below and set visibility to always invisible (Highlight field go to Edit menu > Form Designer > Visibility).


The PST tax field.

If you do not have a PST tax field add the field and calculation as shown below.
