The Profit & Loss Tab in Scenarios

Written by Ross MacLeod

About

The Scenario Builder is divided into four tabs: Workings, Profit & Loss, Balance Sheet and Cashflow. The Profit & Loss tab offers a compartmentalised view. Selecting the Profit & Loss tab will display a breakdown of all Profit & Loss accounts which contain transactional data (either forecast or actual) within the dates selected to view. Unlike the Workings Tab, you’ll only¬†find Profit & Loss Chart of Account lines. You’ll also only see displayed nominal codes which contain transactional data for the date range selected. As in the Workings Tab, Forecast items can be displayed expanded or contracted on a line-by-line basis. You may also export the data contained within the Profit & Loss tab to PDF. This will export any Assumptions which have been entered first and then all Profit & Loss data for the date range selected.
