From each of the books of original entry, Cash Book, Bank Payments Book, Sales and Purchases Books you can produce two kinds of transaction report in the accounting software:
Detail Reports list all transactions for a given period. They show all the information you have entered such as Date, Reference Numbers (if any), the Total Amount, VAT (if any) and how you have analysed them under the various Analysis Categories.
Summary Reports contain largely the same information but only show monthly totals for the period you specify in the accounting software.
Produce Transaction Report – Bank Payments Details Example.
On the Reports menu high-light Bank Payments and either ‘Bank Payments Summary’ or ‘Bank Payments Details’.
