    Hi Everyone

    The Profit & loss report in the AccountRight browser interface will allow the user to run the report on a calendar basis. This is even if you are in a different financial year format (July to June).

  • Is this simple feature really hard to add to MYOB? And we have to pay $12.00 just because MYOB lock the date??

  • I think this would be great. Any developments in the 9 years since this was suggested?

    I agree!!  Calendar year reporting would be so helpful for running multi-period reports.  This time of the year is so frustrating not being able to use historic information prior to July...

  • It would be great to have the option calender year & finacial year purely for reporting P&L either way direct from MYOB as I have clients that require both styles of reporting.

    More options and flexibility for your reports is something that we're happy to look into adding in the future, its great to see some votes and comments already from the community on this to show their support. Please remember to keep voting. As Michael_Fox has said, currently there are advances reporting packs available at http://myob.com.au/addons/
  • Yes, Calendar year, or infact any period reports, is often more useful rather than just being stuck within a financial year. And not just PNL. The reports need to relate to the industry the business is in, not just the financial year of when the report is generated. We have been waiting for this feature for a long time and we expected that MYOB would have pulled their socks up and provided it with the latest versions. Other software such as Xero have this feature, so why wouldn't MYOB do the same.


    I would like to encourage someone at MYOB to look at this and implement this earlier rather than later.
