The default layout on Calxa Balance Sheet reports shows Asset - Liability = Equity as Net Assets = Equity. In some regions the preferred balance sheet layout shows Asset = Liability + Equity. In this help article we'll show you how to use an Account Tree to present your balance sheet with this layout.   


Balance Sheet Report


  1. Create an Account Tree if you don't already have a custom one

  2. See the following help material for details on next steps
    1. Account Tree: Categories & Running Totals
    2. Account Tree: Header & Detail Accounts

  3. Create the Category and Header structure as follows

    Account Tree Balance Sheet
    1. Category = Assets (no running total)
    2. Category = Liabilities & Equity (no running total)
      1. Header = Liabilities
      2. Header = Equity

  4. You can optionally add additional header accounts to create more levels
