QB Issue Resolution:

You can record this by first creating an expense account. To do this, go to Accounting > Chart of accounts > New. Select Expenses as the account type and Taxes Paid as the detail type – name this whatever you would like. Once you have created this account, go to the + icon and select Expense. You can then select the account created and record the payment amount.

 

This account is to be used in this one off situation, as QuickBooks will automatically use the VAT Control/Suspense accounts for future filings.
