One of the advantages of working with specialized accounting and payroll firm is being up to date on news that other accounting and payroll firms would skip.
Grubhub and Uber Eats both are changing their procedures regarding sales tax reporting and paying. Previously, Grubhub and Uber Eats made the restaurant responsible for paying sales tax on its sales. Due to changes in state law, and starting October 1, 2019 for Grubhub and February 1, 2020 for Uber Eats, they will report and pay sales tax on its orders from you.
You are responsible for keeping track of Grubhub and Uber Eats sales and reporting it on your sales tax but then showing it as a subtraction from taxable sales. Kallas will report it properly on your sales tax but you need to differentiate Grubhub and Uber Eats sales and report it to us each month.
Currently, other delivery services such as DoorDash are not included in this new change so if you sell food through them you are still liable to collect and pay sales tax.
If you have any questions on this, call your bookkeeper or Dan Wilson at Kallas.
