Hi @lubos. If you refer back to original posting. I guess the main reason
is not one for balance sheet reporting but more tracking codes reporting.
I am more on about movements by tracking code by date range, then about the
Balance sheet as a whole and in this instance the detail i want to report
on is enclosed in the bal sheet movements not the p&l.
Tracking codes can be job costing codes for example . If all jobs costs are
strickly p&l related then the need to include the bal sheet is totally
unnecessary agreed. But if some of the movements are bal sheet related
say wip ( work in progress) or say retention withheld on invoices raised
that won’t be phyically paid by the customer until one yr after the date of
partical completion as it is called. This money is withheld legally for a
period to ensure work completed is done in a manner that is of the standard
expected, if any failures due to workmanship in that 12 mth period then the
retention held money can be used to fix the problem by the customer. This
is how things work in the construction industry.
I could have multiple jobs ( tracking codes) on the go at the same time for
multiple customers. If i wanted to run a tracking code report on a Customer
for a specific time period to know total amounts of retention withheld then
tracking codes will do the job perfectly.
This is just one example , my original intention for use is for a less
conventional purpose but the princilpe and reasoning stands. I could set up
muliple accounts and maybe use special accounts but the simplest approach
is just allowing tracking codes to bal sheet accounts if that is an easy
ask of you and the development team. Some of the big player software do
this already so my request is not unique.
Please just give it your consideration and weight up the pros and cons. I
will accept the outcome as no if it is of too little benefit to manger and
Thanks for your time in considering my request.
ps As always, thank you sincerely for developing this software for me and
my clients it has become a essential tool for accounting and informstion
