FAQ: How to receive monthly profit and loss report?
If you specify the whole year as a parameter in the Xero profit and loss report, Xero returns cumulative numbers for each of the displayed months. If you want to see the 'Profit and loss' report from 2021-12-01 to 2021-12-31 split by months, you should use the following parameters:
- Start Date: 2021-12-01
- End Date: 2021-12-31
- Number of periods to compare: 11
- Period: Month
This will display the report for the last month of the desired period and add 11 previous months to compare values, which is exactly what we need to see.
