Today, in the US, we’ve renamed Profit and Loss to the more appropriate ‘Income Statement’ and Movements in Equity to ‘Statement of Owners' Equity’. In the UK, the Movements in Equity report has been renamed ‘Statement of Changes in Equity’.

Default report layouts have also changed - for example, the fixed asset layout in the UK Balance Sheet. Remember, you can change the layouts to suit your organization.
