Profit and Loss report does not match a sales report

On a Profit & Loss Report, the amount for an income account does not match the amount on a sales report (e.g., Sales by Item Summary report).

Why this is happening

An apparent discrepancy between P&L and sales reports can trace to one or more of several issues, including, but not limited to:

  1. The date ranges of the reports do not match.
  2. The accounting bases of the reports do not match.
  3. Sales items point to incorrect sales accounts.
  4. The P&L report includes transactions that do not use items (e.g., the Expense Tab on a bill or a journal entry).
  5. List or transaction damage in the company data file.
