Time period

Enter your desired time period here. Please note that the maximum period for one report is one year.

Business type

The 'business type' filter requires you to choose either 'sole trader' or 'limited company'. If you require a report which includes both sole traders and limited companies, you will need to run two separate reports. This is due to the different chart of accounts structure for each business type. Please note that this report is not applicable to partnerships or LLPs at this time.

Account type

An account type is a way of grouping nominal accounts together, so therefore, generally, more than one nominal account will be returned (reported) for any given account type, for example, turnover.

Account types are assigned to nominal accounts; either by FreeAgent for standard accounts, or for custom spending categories created by you or your client. Account types are FreeAgent's way of filtering, as these will always be consistent across your clients, as opposed to nominal accounts which can differ. All nominal accounts will, however, appear in the report. Sub-accounts will also be displayed, including employee and bank sub-accounts.

 Now wait a moment while FreeAgent generates your report...

How the transactions are displayed

In this report, the credit transactions are displayed as negative values and debits as positive. In other words, transactions against profit and loss accounts will show income transactions as a negative and costs as a positive, while balance sheet transactions will show assets as a positive and liabilities as a negative.
