why would you not give me the option to display data within a range?
As I wrote before: because it makes no accounting sense. Your original question was about displaying a balance sheet for a defined time period, like a profit and loss statement.
My original question was genereal about adding “set period” in all tabs/categories with balance sheet being one example, you can see that if you read the post again, especially the topic, " lack of the ability to set a period in purchase invoices. sales invoices, taxes… etc. even in the “summary tab"
it docent seem to me that it would take any major programming other then adding a subtle button which already exist in summary.
Features will never be added that contradict fundamental accounting principles, now matter how easy that might be.
I dont get the argument that it contradicts fundamental accounting principles. does it also contradict fundamental accounting principles when use the search box to acces the data? how can it contradict anything to be able to see a specific period for my business. what if i only want to see how i did in 2017 does that contradict accounting principles unless i see it trough a pdf report?
i want to go and check if “Amounts are tax inclusive” is turned on but the report only shows me the ones where it is turned on.
You have not said what report you are referring to. But that really does not matter, because the checkbox for
Amounts are tax-inclusive has nothing to do with whether transactions are included on reports. That checkbox only controls whether the tax amount is added to the price of the item or is already included in it and has to be backed out.
You are kinda right about that it docent really matter what report. but in this case im talking about “Tax Transactions” i have no chance to see in that report if something slipped trough, didn’t get tax categorised, and even if i was able to see it, it seems weird to me that i have to make a report and then go back to change something instead of just being able to press to post and correct it.
mistake of putting an item into a wrong category of VAT is possible.
Transactions involving various tax codes can be easily reviewed in the Tax Transactions report. That is what it is for.
i just want to see how many invoices i had in a specific period.
A time-restricted balance sheet will not provide that information. But in the Sales Invoices tab, you can sort by date and count or export. Depending on your date format, you can get the result directly in a Search. For example, if your format is DD/MM/YYYY, you can search for “03/2018” have get a list of all invoices from March 2018. At the bottom of the list, the Export (2) button will tell you 2 invoices were found.
yes so much i understood. so lets say i want to see the list first 3 months of 2018 (which is a tax period for VAT in my case) how do i “search” on that
and isn’t this also a violation of fundamental accounting principles?
another case that i would have to be able to see a specific period (and interact with it, instead of interacting with the pdf from the report) is if the TAX authorities. come back in a year and say they see irregularities in my tax period from XX-XX-XXXX to XX-XX-XXXX
