Difference Between a Balance Sheet Report and Other Reports?

Let see the difference between a Balance Sheet Report and other Reports. Here you know that the balance sheet reports are not matched with other reports. Even after you have to ensure that all the filters you have are similar. Few reasons are described here why this occurs, these are:

  • Your Balance Sheet Report comes under the Cumulative Report of your company’s starting balance. 
  • When we are talking about other reports, the date range will only be applied to “Net Income” and a particular amount will also be selected within the report. 

Note: We have an example for you: Suppose you will have $50 of Sales Tax in March and $60 in April, the balance sheet will only represent $110 for the “Sales tax liability” account. 

  • For the Report, If the date range is April, it will only represent the cumulative total of $110. Although, if you have selected $110, Its transaction report will appear as the starting balance indicating a balance of $50 and then $60 transaction for the Month(April).
  • Additionally, The “sales by the report” is restricted to the date range you have already set, or you can change it as per your need. If the report date you have set is April then you are only eligible to check out the reports only for April and $60 dollars will only be represented.
