More options

If you have set up tracking categories for this organization, a 'More options' link will display so that you can filter the report based on your tracking options.


Click the 'Fewer Options' link if you want to close these options and just use the standard date and comparison options.

  • Either one or both of the tracking categories you have set up will display.
  • By default, the report will not be filtered, you need to choose an option from the tracking category.
  • For each tracking category displayed, you can choose to view the report with no filter (i.e. just the default report) or by an option for each category.
  • Only transactions in the period of the report that match the tracking option(s) chosen will be included in totals.
  • If there are no transactions for the period or date range for the tracking option(s) you have chosen, the report will be empty.
  • There is no 'More options' link if you don't have tracking categories.

View transactions




Cash in and out of the bank accounts you have in Xero will display for the chosen period.

Only amounts that have passed through the bank account set up in Xero will be included in these totals. Spend and receive money transactions and transfers will show up right away, but invoice payments will not until they are marked on the invoice as paid or are reconciled.

If you are using multi-currency the report footnotes show the figures that were converted into your base currency for the purpose of reporting in one currency and at what rate the conversion rate occurred. They also show where the rate was taken from (i.e. whether it was an XE rate or a rate entered by a user). If there has been a foreign currency gain or loss in a foreign currency bank account, an additional column showing this will display. Find out more on how multi-currency reports in Xero work.

Export options

If you have the Advisor user role you will also be able to Save as Draft, or Publish this report and change the default PDF preferences. If you’re using Partner Edition your practice logo will display if your Principal has set it up.


Print the report directly from your browser.


Choose where you want to export the report to. You can either view it or save it once it's exported into the chosen format.


Open the report directly into Excel or save it to your computer and open it from there.



Open the report directly as a PDF or save it to your computer and open it from there. Zero figures will show on the PDF as '-' and do not show decimal places so numbers are rounded for display purposes only. In many cases PDF amounts may not add up correctly due to rounding, but in Xero and other exported formats the calculations are correct.

Google Sheets

If you use Gmail, you can set up your account to access Google Sheets (Google's document viewer). You can then export the report to Google Sheets and edit, save or share it. You’re prompted to log into Gmail (if you're not already) and you’re prompted to confirm that Xero is a 'trusted' site each time you start a Google Sheets session.


When you authenticate your connection to Google Drive and export to Google Sheets, a connection is made to your Xero account. You can break the connection at any time.
