Profit & Loss Report - As a percentage (%) of sales

Started by Erin Adams in Feature Requests | Done!

I have a many clients and accountants asking me why Xero does not have a percentage sales P&L report.

One example - a client who I controverted is very active on cash flow and knowing where everything is in his business. This is my have moved to Xero, however he misses the percentage sales P&L report, I know you can extract and do the calculations in excel but he does want to.

This would also be helpful when looking at other clients too, an extra tick box in the option of the P&L would be my wish, but an additional report would do the same.

Please Xero can we have a percentage sales P&L report.

You'll now find a % of sales option within the Report Settings of the Profit & Loss / Income Statement report.

And, if you're adding comparatives you'll also see % of sales for each comparative period - We knew this was an important part of this feature but didn't know how it stacked up against other important parts, so thanks for the beta feedback confirming that it needed to be available on day 1 :-)

Take a look today - and we'll have more enhancements coming to help provide further insight into your business.

Massive thanks to everyone who gave feedback on this thread, participated in interviews or gave us feedback in the beta. Your input really drove the direction of this feature, and we wouldn't have been able to do it without your active involvement.
