Accounting: General Ledger Report

The General Ledger report shows a list of transactions posted against each GL Account code. It is based on a range of dates that you enter. It will show you the source of the transaction for example Sales Invoice/Credit Note, Purchase Invoice/Credit Note, Payments, Journals etc. For each GL account it will give you a Cumulative Balance, adding on each transaction to give you a total.

Amounts are displayed in local currency and you will see that any values that are negative will be displayed within brackets.

If there are no transactions for the GL account a line will still be displayed with just an Open balance for that account from the date range you entered.
