I am trying to get the reporting correct by Class. My P&L Budget vs Actual report seems to be accurate but when I filter by Class I have vendor bills that are not showing anymore even when the Bill is marked correctly with the right Class?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello there, @tmullins.
I'm here to help share information about running the Profit & Loss Budget vs Actual report in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).
Transactions will just reflect on the report if there's a specific class assigned to each transaction or per line account. If the bill created has more than one line account, please ensure to assign a class to each line. It's possible that some of your bill or line account doesn't have a class.
In this case, you must double check the bill you've created that are not appearing on the report.
You see attached screenshots for additional reference.
On the other hand, to learn more about using class tracking in QBDT, you may check this article: How to Use Class Tracking in QuickBooks.

This has helped significantly. I knew I was missing something. I also have some Bills that are not entered on "Expenses" but are for items on the "Items" tab and I have marked that line specifically with the Class but it is not showing up in my P&L Budget vs Actual report?
Any ideas on that issue?
Hi there, @tmullins.
Please allow me to help share a little more information about the running the Profit and Loss report.
The Profit and Loss (P&L) report summarizes or shows your income and expenses to know whether your business is operating at a profit or loss.
When creating a bill under the Items tab/column, the accounts affected of the item are Accounts Payable and the account on the item selected (Service, Inventory, and others). However, when creating a bill under the Expenses tab/column, the accounts affected are Accounts Payable and the Expense account selected.
The reason why the bill entered under the Items column is not showing on the report because it doesn't affect any expense account.
On the other hand, to see all the bills you've created either under the Expenses or Items tab, you may run/open the Transaction List by Vendor report and make the necessary customization.
To open the report:

Thank you so much for your help. I understand the difference but I also see that the Item is assigned the Expense account of Cost of Goods Sold (COGS). The Bill expense for the items are showing on the P&L Budget vs Actual report, but it is not showing under the correct Class (even thought the class is assigned in the bill)?
Also, I have a few items that are showing under the correct Class, but most are not?
Thank you for your help.
