If your business has changed its GST information, there is a simple way to reflect this in Farm Focus.

  1. Go to Settings and click on Financial.

  2. Here you can change your GST number and it will pull through into any un-finalised GST reports. Make sure you still check this information within your GST report before you finalise and send it to IRD.

  3. You can also check the basis and frequency of your GST on this page. See below for how to make the changes.

Note: you will need to contact our help center to change the Financial Year End date.

Changing GST Frequency & Basis

If you need to change the basis or frequency of your GST reporting period this can be done within the GST report. Go to Reports and select GST Returns. Click on the Settings icon in the top right corner of your screen.

  1. Select the frequency or basis that your GST return is changing to. Check that your GST basis or frequency has been updated for the next un-finalised GST return.

  2. The period these changes will take effect will start with your next un-finalised GST return. Click Continue to save your changes.

TIP: We strongly advise you to consult your accountant before you change the basis of your GST. Changing the GST basis can be complex, if you do decide to change your GST basis, ensure everything is filed in the correct GST period. This can be especially problematic with partially paid invoices.
