Hi 4mbr, 

 

QuickBooks Online comes stocked with tons of great reports that can help give you a better understanding of your business finances. It's important that you're able to view your Budget vs. Actuals report in a way that makes sense for you. I'll explain your options. 


Reports can often be filtered or customized to display information specific to your needs. In the case of the Budget vs. Actuals report, you're able to filter by Account only. If this is something that would help you, you can do so by following the steps below. 

 

1. Click Reports

2. Select the Budget vs. Actuals report. 

3. Click Customize

4. Click the Filter drop-down menu, then check off the box next to Account

5. Select the account of choice, then click Run report. 

 

I hope this helps. If that's not quite what you're looking for, I'd recommend reaching out to our tech support team. I'm confident an agent will be able to get you back on the right track in no time. 

 

Have a great day.

I have QB Desktop Premier, not QB online.

I see, my mistake. 

 

With QuickBooks Desktop, you can filter reports just as easily as you can with the Online version! To customize the report in QuickBooks Desktop, follow this article for tips and helpful instructions: Customize reports in QuickBooks Desktop

 

If you have any other questions, please get in touch with our Desktop support department

Cheers.

Hello phillipaSA,

 

You're correct in that only one budget can be selected at a time when running the Profit & Loss Budget vs. Actual report. Since I can see how important it could be to reflect more than one budget or compare budgets in a report like this, so I encourage you to navigate to the Help menu and choose to Submit feedback online in order to let our product developers know what you'd like to see in future QuickBooks Desktop updates.

 

In the meantime, you can use the option to Create new worksheet be selecting the Excel dropdown at the top of the report. You can run a report for each budget, then manipulate the data via Excel once you've exported it. This'll allow you to see exactly the data you're looking to pull.

 

Let me know if there's more I can do to help. Have a great day!
