We NEED better BAS/GST Reporting

Started by Sam Miller in Feature Requests | Idea

It seems that with every new 'feature' we lose functionality.

With the full activity statement we could manually set date ranges and check the BAS at different times including checking period that had already been processed.

With the new simpler BAS we could no longer go back and check prior periods, especially if clients had made changes in periods that had already been reported. Additionally the GST audit report no longer picked up the entries, a report that is largely useless because you cannot use it for Cash reporting.

Finally with the newest option to lodge your BAS through Xero you now even lose the ability to check your BAS for the current period... a lot of us use this to keep track of our upcoming liabilities.

We need a report that behaves like the 'Full BAS' so we can verify data entries without having to go in and change all the settings each time we want to see that information.

Even if you just give us the ability to use the 'Full BAS' report even if we're using the simpler BAS or lodgement through Xero - the functionality is already there, just don't hide it from us, add it as a report option in the reports screen!
