The information within the Accountants Report can help to generate your client's accounts and can be viewed by either Accrual View (invoice or event date) or Payment Date (Cash payment date).

It will generate information for a standard 12-month financial year or for a custom date range, including timeframes that cross financial years, where the length of your client's financial year has been shortened or lengthened to suit a new balance date.

To view the Accountants report:

The report is made up of seven sections.

  3. Bank statement summary

Printing the Report

If you wish to print the entire report, select to Display All Sections at the top of the dropdown menu. Select the printing icon and choose the Print option. This will allow the report to print with page numbers, and will also be dated to show when the report was created.

Accountants Codes

The Accountant Codes can be mapped in the Settings section of Farm Focus. Farm codes are mapped against each extended code, and the General Ledger export codes are mapped in their own section of General Ledger Account Codes.

These codes will show throughout the Accountants Annual report. They will show in green where they are mapped, and it will be highlighted in red where no codes have been mapped to allow for easier tracking.
