Canadian Tech Group

Hi, all I created this group for Canadians on here so we can discuss how to use the Turbocash software and better understand it so that it works for them.  I would like to make some tutorials on how to use TurboCASH better such as making custom reports using Report Designer, learning how to open the SQL data base and the tools needed to browse the Turbocash data base.  I think that Phillip has made a great piece of software and I want to contribute back.  I would like to get it so TurboCASH is just as easy to learn and use as Quickbooks out there.  I believe that goal can be achieved if more people band to together on the forums to share their experiences so we can piece the information so we can make Turbocash a solid experience.

If you would like to help towards this project, please join this group so we can getting something started.

Well folks want to browse your TurboCash metadata? you can open it up with Flamerobin use just have to make you have your database username and password set correctly. Defaults are:

user: sysbda
pass: masterkey

And register a set of books under flame robin and if you didn't didn't specify any login credentials of your own on intial setup voila there your in your metadata. Now you can browse happily do you can locate the data you need for report designer.

Felt like christmas once I finally figured this out.…/521-multiu…

In TurboCASH you can only have "Onetax" per transaction. gets too complex otherwise. So you have to group taxes.

HST is the basis of the solution.

If I have GST and PST for local sales and only GSTfro crosss states sales, I will ahve to create two tax types

Instate sales (GST+PST)

Cross State sales (GST only)

Then I am gogint to need a monthly Journal to balance the contraol account.

Now we can create a single set of books fro Canada (encompassing ALL options - about 16 differenttaxtypes) and then when the user installs he simply deletes the tax type not applicable


we can have a set of books fro each state.

Everyone following me?

I would just setup a set of books for each individual provinces. It would be make it alot simpler.  Have a Canadian template set of books package that can be downloaded..  Then when people setup there set of books they simply only have to choose their province or territory.  They can delete the rest if they want.

First off one thing that would good to see is if there was some way of an accounting to roughly calculate how much federal and provincial tax on owes as a person it making sales.  It is always a worry when you are not setting aside enough income tax to pay the CRA at the end of the year and then "whoops",  when you calculate if it out at the end of the fiscal period, you realize that not enough was saved for income tax.. To calculate federal and provincial income CRA has a webpage for this:

As for localizing GST, PST, and HST, here are some charts of the different kinds of sales tax depending on province or territory.

Anyone setting up book keeping for Canadian business should read the Business and Professional Income guide from the CRA.  It explains what types of expenses are deductible from Canadian Income tax so your tax payable at the year end is less.

Also another thing to look at for Canadian Federal and Provincial Income tax rates for individuals:

The Tax authorities may impose changes in the VAT (GST/Sales tax) rates. For example, in South Africa, the South African Revenue Services (SARS), changed the VAT rate from 14% to 15% on 1 April 2018.

I have a farm in Africa

Posted by Philip Copeman on April 21, 2018 at 19:27 0 Comments

... and then they want to take the land back without compensation? The idea is preposterous.
Land only has value if you can keep another African off it. Land only has value if you have complete tenure, right down to the freedom to dispose of the asset.
Naive attempts to directly tax the ownership of Land…
