Hi Jo-anne,

Welcome to the Reckon Community.

Is there a particular GL Account your Accountant is asking for a summary of?


Kind Regards

Hi Jo-anne.


You can print a General Ledger Report as follows:

Reports > Accountant > General Ledger & select the Date Range your Accountant requires.

This is however a detailed transaction list of all GL accounts & can also be exported to Excel if required.

Hope this helps

Kay

Yes, in addition to what Kay stated,as a tax agent myself, would also give Trial Balance , PL and BS and June Bank rec and details of any Asset purchase. If the tax agent becomes the partner all you need to do give a backup copy. life is easier for both.

Having an accountant familiar with the accounting software you use is very important.

This was not helpful, we know there is a general ledger detail account, what we need is to be able to get a general ledger summary report (like in MYOB and Xero) of the movements in each account in a financial year. We don't want to have to export a detailed report and go through every transaction, we just want to know the net movement of each account.

Hi Jude.  Can you please send the details of this movement report to me.  I have spent the good part of an hour trying to create such a report in Quickbooks to no avail. Please help!  My email is rebeccat@mtwo.net.au

Thanks
