MyWorks makes it as easy as possible to handle accounting for the sales tax collected in Shopify. We'll automatically sync the tax charged on the order into QuickBooks Desktop as we sync the order: no setup needed on your part!

MyWorks is perfectly compatible with the automated Shopify Tax service in Shopify. When enabled in Shopify, MyWorks will sync the accurate sales tax collected on the order into QuickBooks.

Syncing as a line item

If you enable the setting to sync sales tax as a line item in MyWorks Sync > Settings > Tax,  the Sales Tax collected in the WooCommerce order will be passed into a line item in QuickBooks Desktop. This "Sales Tax" item is set in MyWorks Sync > Settings > Tax - and can be created in your QuickBooks and assigned to your "Sales Tax Payable" account.
