I have printed profit and loss report from 1/1/18-12/31/18. I have also printed a payroll summary from 1/1/18-12/21/18. Some of the numbers differ. Our audit is not balancing and I'm wondering if I'm not printing the right reports to do the audit on.

You can access them by clicking Reports at the top, and choosing the appropriate title.
The information above should help you with the audit. Please ping me in the comments section if you have other questions. Enjoy your day.
