Please make this general ledger summary report available because it is really important for accountant to put the figures in MYOB general ledger.

Hmmm, Given that accountants have been asking for GL Summary report to be included since 2013!.......... I guess the answer in no? Would be extremely handy however.

Can someone from MYOB advise if this report is available yet?

 

This is a basic report that is essential for accountants- which is why we have not recommended MYOB Essentials to clients in the past.

Thanks for Responding with the ANSWER:

 

TRIAL BALANCE is used instead.

Trial balance helps for profit and loss items, but doesnts show the annual movement on the balance sheet items - this means you have to manually calculate this. This is the only software i have used that doesnt provide this general ledger summary report.
