Adding an Account twice on a report in QSW

I am creating a cash flow statement and we have the depreciation included in the Net Income (loss) portion but they also would like to add the depreciation back on another line without taking it out of the Net Income. How can I add those depreciation accounts to the reports without taking them out of the Net Income?

Re: Adding an Account twice on a report in QSW

Hello JennaHorn,


Welcome to the QuickBooks Desktop community! It's great to have you with us. :)


When it comes to matters such as depreciation and making sure the accounts are each set up properly, I always recommend speaking with an accountant. There isn't an integrated feature in the program for setting that up, but many accountant users have found ways to make the program work for what they need. The in-product help feature also has some pointers for how you may set this up. Here's how to find that information.

  1. Click Help in the top menu bar.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Select the Help tab.
  4. Press the Search button to bring up the search bar.
  5. Type "depreciation" into the search bar.

One of the related articles is Set up asset accounts to track depreciation.


If you already have the accounts you need set up, customizing reports may help you find the information you need. The report you've mentioned doesn't have the ability to have accounts added, but you can filter by account if you'd like to.


To get in touch with an accountant that's familiar with QuickBooks Desktop, check out our Find a ProAdvisor link. With it, you can use your postal code to search for accountants in your area.


Keep an eye out as other members of our community, including accountant users I mentioned, may chime in with their solutions to your question.


Have a great day!

Re: Adding an Account twice on a report in QSW

Hey Laura, The Depreciation accounts are already setup in QB. When I am creating the Cash Flow statement in Quickbooks Statement Writer and I am adding the accounts to each line item that are associated with that line. For example, the Net Income contains all of the accounts associated with the Net Income amount, a few of those accounts being the depreciation accounts. My problem is that every time I try to create a new line item for depreciation it always removes the depreciation from the Net Income line. I am trying to find out how I can add the depreciation accounts to a different line without taking the accounts out of the Net Income line.
