Xero journals not updating P&L

Didn't find your answer?

I am hoping someone with more knowledge of Xero than I have can help with this.
A new client uses Xero which I can do basics on but am no expert - I have posted some journals and they have updated the trial balance for the year, but if I display the Profit and loss account the adjustments are not reflected in those figures. (ie P&L doesn't agree to updated TB)
I've had a "google" and can see the question being asked but no relevant answer. (I've checked the dates are correct and the journals are posted.)

Can anyone explain why and more importantly how to get the correct P&L please?

Have you referred it to Xero support?

Is it the corporation tax? This appears as an expense in Xero unless you design your own report.

is this a "cash based" vs "accruals based" reporting issue?

There is a radio button to show up journals on a cash basis report.

Yes, thank-you!

So hidden away in the "More" box switching from cash to accruals basis fixed it!

Don't really understand the logic as my journals were not "accruals" in the accounting sense I understand

Don’t worry about it too much - Xero logic is definitely not the same as normal accounting logic for quite a few things.
