Report: General Ledger [Detail] - Tax column

I wouldn't think this was a particularly difficult thing to 'add' in to MYOB general ledger detail reports (or in the GST/Tax area etc) but we definitely DO need to be able to simply customise our MYOB general ledger details report so as to 'add' a column on that report to show the GST claimed/paid in respect of ANY transaction.


This makes it very quick and easy to pick a particular account, have the appropriate column filters ON (including the tax amount column) to drill down and not only see account totals but to determine which PARTICULAR/INDIVIDUAL accounts have had GST treated correctly.


Exception reports are fine...but when explaining to a client, it is far easier to simply bring up an account and show them which accounts are not doing what we need/expect them to do.


By having a 'tax column' account, it will also benefit the accountant by totalling up the GST applicable to those transactions without meticulously wasting time clicking into transactions one at a time then manually adding up as a basis for a journal adjustment.


Quickbooks has this simple tax amount column available to ALL ledger transaction detail reports and I think it is long overdue in MYOB reporting. Very simple for accountants and clients to make use of...please add in ASAP!


I have attached a QB report which is just a basic drill down into the general ledger of 'bank fees' --> I simply select tax column and it shows me which transactions did or did not have GST claimed on them WITHOUT having to view all transactions for a month/quarter/year for ALL accounts.


An exception report is great for bookkeepers or those at a data entry level...the column I refer to is a simple addition which helps accountants check particular accounts at a quick glance and gives us the information in a split second including the totals which form the basis for any adjustment required.

I also discussed this with a MYOB training representative some time ago in Brisbane who advised that this functionality was not and was never part of the MYOB reporting system. A MYOB representative advised us late yesterday to submit this here in the hope that it would be considered and adopted in newer versions...please do!

Thank you for the suggestion, making reports easier to look at and get all the information you need is something that we're always keen to look into. Any other members that would like to see this added, please do keep voting and commenting.

It would be great to see the tax code applied on transactions in the General Ledger (detail) report.

It would be good to be able to have a column showing the GST code applied on transactions in the General Ledger Detail Report.

Hi there,


I'm an accountant and regular user of AccountRight and would love to see an option within the General Ledger Detail report to be able to add 'GST Rate Name' and 'GST Code' column within the report.

It's now been well over 6 years and no action by MYOB, extremely disappointing when all competitors provide this option.

This original post is pretty old and nothing has been done so far. Is this something MYOB is looking into?
