MYOB Essentials - General Ledger should have gross column

The General Ledger report within MYOB Essentials (and all other MYOB software packages) should have a Gross column.


This is especially frustrating for clients who have recently moved from BankLink and are accustomed to this feature in their reports.


I know that this will have been suggested many times by customers. Other software providers such as Reckon and Xero integrate this feature, so this is something that MYOB should be on board with.

I agree with the above comment. It is not clear that the general ledger is showing net figures. 


To add to this, it would be great if the general ledger totalled the transactions for the period. At the moment the opening balance adds to the transactions for the period to get the closing balance. We need to manually subtract the opening balance to get the total of the transactions for the period.

To clarify - THREE columns : Gross, Net & GST Amount

Agree - Have atleast 3 partners this year ask me about this feature.
Have had to tell them that it's simply not available as yet.

Yes, if we can get 3 columns - net amount, GST amount and gross amount that would be great!
