Using the Audit Report

Tapping Audit in the Other Reports screen displays the report. From this screen, you can

  • Review all the transactions dated between the report dates.
  • Change the date range of the report.
  • Send the report by email, print it or open it in another app.
What does the report show?

The purpose of the report is to list all the accounts and all the transactions made.

Each account is listed in the report, together with the:

  • Account category,
  • Balance brought forward at the start date,
  • List of transactions affecting the balance,
  • Balance carried forward at the end date,
  • Transaction ID. 

    Note: The Transaction ID is not shown elsewhere in EasyBooks, but allows you to track the same transaction when it appears elsewhere in the Audit report. This may be especially useful for split transactions as each split has the same Transaction ID.

Your accountant may ask you for this report if they don't have access to your accounts via Online Sync.

How does EasyBooks pick the initial date range?

The Next P&L Consolidation date from your Business Settings is used as the end date of the report. If this date has not yet passed, the report uses current date instead. If you've consolidated your profit and loss, the day after your last consolidation is used as the start date. Otherwise the date of the earliest transaction is used.

How do I view a previous year's report?

Use the back and forward buttons to change the report date quickly to the previous or next financial period. The report will run for the whole of the financial period selected.

Options in the settings Menu:
  • Change Start Date - You can set the start date to any date prior to the currently selected end date.
  • Change End Date - You can set the end date to any date after to the currently selected start date.
Options in the action Menu:

This button is used to send or print the report. It uses the standard Apple sharing panel and allows you to send the report by email or AirDrop, print it to an Airprint-compatible printer or send it to another app such as Dropbox. Three file formats of the report are available.

  • As shown (HTML) - The HTML format will open in a web browser.
  • Comma separated (CSV) - The CSV format contains the same information and is more suited to importing into a spreadsheet.
  • Both (ZIP) - The ZIP format contains both the HTML and CSV files compressed into a single zip file.
