QuickBooks for Nonprofits

  • Net incomes differ between the Balance Sheet by Class and Profit & Loss by Class reports.
  • The Balance Sheet by Class report makes calculations to balance a transaction’s classes. In some cases, this causes the net income for a class on the Profit & Loss by Class report to differ from the net income for that same class on the Balance Sheet by Class report.
  • The two primary financial statements in QuickBooks are the balance sheet and the profit & loss statement.
  • Net Income appears as a line item on both reports.
  • It’s the bottom line on the Profit & Loss Standard report.
  • It’s a component of Equity on the Standard Balance Sheet report.
  • The balance sheet uses the standard accounting equation: Assets = Liabilities + Equity.
  • The balance sheet in total (across all classes) follows the equation and always balances. However, it’s possible that the balance sheet doesn’t balance for an individual class. When this happens, the report shows “Unbalanced Classes.”
