Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to app Balance Sheet / Income Statement.
  2. Provide the mandatory fields.
  3. Press Go.


The standard feature of the app is to only display the parts of the hierarchy that have a value. If a node or section of the hierarchy has no effect on the results (zero balance), the nodes or sections are not included.


To display accounts with a zero balance, in app Balance Sheet / Income Statement you can use the filter "Including zero-balance accounts" in the filter bar. This is found by choosing :

  1. Click on Adapt filters button from filter bar.
  2. Under Special Fields click more filters.
  3. Tick check box Including Zero-Balance Accounts.
  4. Press OK.
  5. Provide all the mandatory field values.
  6. Press GO.
