¾ PST is a single-stage tax collected from final consumers on goods and services

Sales returns and allowance
¾ If merchandise is returned, the general entry would be: Sales returns and allowances
debited, GST/PST payable debited, and Cash/A.R credited
Sales taxes paid on disbursements
¾ Businesses pay GST on their purchases, but are able to recover the GST.
Consequently, when merchandise is purchased, the GST paid by a business is not
part of the inventory cost
¾ The GST paid on purchases is debited to an account called GST recoverable and is
called an input tax credit
¾ This input tax credit is used to offset against the GST payable
¾ When GST is collected, the GST recoverable is subtracted from GST payable and the
net difference is remitted or reimbursed

businesses do not have to pay PST on any merchandise purchased for resale

¾ The entry would be: Merchandise inventory debited, GST recoverable debited, and
A/P credited
Purchase Returns and Allowance
