QuickBooks provides more than 100 financial statements and accounting reports. You get to these reports by opening the Reports menu. The Reports menu arranges reports in roughly a dozen categories, including Company & Financial, Customers & Receivables, Sales, Jobs, and Time & Mileage.

To produce just about any of the reports available through the Reports menu, you first select the Report category. If you want to produce a standard financial statement, such as a profit and loss statement, you choose the Reports →Company & Financial command. QuickBooks displays the Company & Financial submenu, which lists the various types of financial statements available.

You pick the submenu command that describes the financial statement that you want. If you want a standard profit and loss financial statement, you choose the Reports→ Company & Financial → Profit & Loss Standard command. After you choose the command, QuickBooks displays the Report window for the report that you selected, as shown.
