Accounting by day or location

Toast’s configurable GL Account report can be viewed in Reports > Accounts > Accounting by day or Reports > Accounts > Accounting by location.

To configure this report, use the Reports > Accounts > General Ledger Accounts settings. To ensure that all financial figures are represented in the Accounting report, all entities should be mapped to a GL account code. To add a GL account code, select Add GL Account.

Add GL Account button

To ensure that refunds do not cause an Over/Short amount in this report, map the following entities to a manually generated GL code.

  • Credit Card Refunds

  • Cash Refunds

  • Custom Amount Refunds

Toast recommends that you create at least one GL code that is specific to refunds, and that you map this code to these entities. For example, you might create a GL Code called Refunds.​​
