Report: Profit & Loss - Cash to show General Journal entries

I have just found out that the Cash Profit & Loss Statement does not include General Journal Entries.  


All businesses reporting on a cash basis for their income tax returns will be processing general journal entries (depreciation / items purchased by Directors on private cards etc) and they won't have correct Profit & Loss Statements.  


Its tax time now and I'd hate to think of the number of incorrect tax returns lodged because of this software error.


This report has been available for 7 months now and I find it hard to believe that this is still an issue.


This issue affects all of my LiveAccount clients.


I look forward to having this fixed ASAP.

Hi Everyone

MYOB Essentials will include a general journal entry in a Cash Profit and Loss, assuming a Profit & Loss account has been used.
