Balancing out my HST Account

Hi Experts,

I need some help in balancing out my HST Account. In particular, for one period, I spent more than I made, and CRA posted a CR of $5.05 to my account, towards my HST Balance

The issue is when I filed this particular return within QB, it posted the $5.05 to my Receiver General - A/R, opposed to reducing my A/P, in order to balance out with CRA. For this transaction, I located the following Journal Entry under Receiver General (vendor), not A/R.

When I try changing the second line to A/P with the Receiver General (Vendor) as Name, I get

Based on this error, I also assume that I cannot DR A/R and CR A/P.

How can I fix this, and bring the $5.05 into my A/P? I'm using QB 2012

Thank you.

Thanks John. Creative!
You are very welcome. I always look for easier ways than all the tax implications of an HST Journal Entry (which can be mucky)
