The Balance Sheet represents all the Assets, Liabilities, Expenses and Income at a specific moment. The difference between Assets and Liabilities determines the equity capital. In Banana Accounting, the embellished Balance Sheet has the following characteristics:
- The grouping of the accounts is done according to the contents of the BClass column.
- The Enhanced Balance Sheet (Reports menu), shown in the preview, can be saved in different formats (PDF, HTML, MS Excel) and can be copied to the clipboard.
- It is possible to calculate, display and print the budget at the end of the year, or for a specific period.
- Transactions without date are considered as opening transactions and will not appear in the printouts of the Profit & Loss Statement.
To calculate, view and print out the Enhanced balance Sheet, click on the menu Report → Enhanced balance Sheet. A window appears with several sections allowing you to set the printing parameters.

The boxes at the bottom of the enhanced Balance Sheet dialogue box are used to insert the current and previous year headings in the printout.
The first two vertical boxes refer to the dates of the balance sheet, the second to those of the income statement.
At the moment, when opening the dialogue window of the Enhanced Balance Sheet, the boxes for entering the current and previous year are not clearly visible.
To view the boxes mentioned, one must scroll all the way down the vertical scroll bar, located on the right-hand side of the dialogue box.
Insert the final date of the current accounting.
Enter the final date of the previous year's accounting in this field.
When switching to the new year from the menu Actions → Create New Year, the header of the previous year is not adapted automatically, so it must be changed manually. This issue will be resolved in the future.
Dialogue not fully visible
To display the Enhanced Balance dialogue box completely, choose one of two procedures:
