Profit & Loss with LY Comparison

Report Summary

Printed Report Title: Profit & Loss Statement w/ LY

Standard Profit and Loss statement with prior year comparison based on selected range.


New Features

This latest version (Released Dec-2014) includes 2 new features: EBITDA sub-totals and Revenue Comparison Groups. 

EBITDA Sub-Totals

GL accounts can be flagged to be excluded from EBITDA sub-totals.  (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation & Amortization)  Flagged G/L Accounts will appear below the EBITDA sub-totals.


G/L accounts can be flagged as part of a "Revenue Comparison Group."  This allows you to view a subset of accounts within their own "Mini P&L" separate from the overall report.  

This is great when you want a filtered look at revenue and expenses that are only associated with a specific part of the business like a restaurant or tap room.


Default Location In Orchestrated

*These are the standard default locations. Your locations may be different.


Typically Used by

Owners, shareholders, Comptrollers and key management would run this to view the total revenues and expenses for given time periods compared to the same time period the prior year.

Assigning a G/L account to a Revenue Comparison Group DOES NOT affect the standard P&L report.   All accounts will show on the standard P&L, regardless of whether they are assigned to a Revenue Comparison group.

Parameters "Hide $0 accounts" and roll up summary are both great for a shorter, summary report
