Re: Why are my income and expense transactions missing from my Profit and Loss report?

Hey there, @Anonymous,


Welcome and thanks for joining our forum. I can share some insights on how to generate a Profit and Loss report in QuickBooks Self-employed.


When pulling up the P&L report, please make sure you select the correct date range. The information displayed on the report is based on the period they are entered in QuickBooks. Additionally, other tools and Equipment transactions are listed under Other business expenses. To view the breakdown, click the Other business expenses amount.


However, if those tools/types of equipment are part of the company's asset, please know that these are not included in the Profit and Loss report. You can view what your company owns in the Balance Sheet report (QBO). Your P&L focuses on revenues, costs, and expenses incurred during a specified period.


If you're getting the same hurdle, let's try doing this on a private browser, Here's how:

  • For Chrome, press Ctrl+Shift+N
  • For Internet Explorer or Firefox, press Ctrl+Shift+P.
  • For Safari, hold down Command+Shift+N.

If it works, you can go back to your regular browser then clear its cache to tidy up your browsing history. 


Please update me on how it goes, @Anonymous. I'm just a post away if you have any questions. Have a great day!
