Using the Audit Report

You can run an Audit report by choosing Audit in the Other Reports screen. You can:

  • Review all the transactions dated between the report dates.
  • Change the date range of the report.
  • Save, print or email the report.
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 (scroll to the right). 
  • 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 Consolidation date specified in the 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 save, print or email the report?

In the report screen, click send located in the top-right corner of the screen, followed by one of the send options.
