Summary report


A summary report shows grouped data in a report; for example, when you have two transactions, that have the same project and tax rates, these transactions will be summarized and shown as one transaction in the report.

The report shows the necessary amount of data in an order the user needs it. User can later download this report as a CSV file.

In order to get a summary report, you don’t need the access to all ERPLY Books functions (you don’t need to have the big package), you can still get the report if you only use some of the features.

Summary transaction – a summary transaction is an assembly of transactions organized by their dimensions in a certain period of time, considering that there are different dimension groups in a summary transaction. Dimensions are – tax rates, projects, accounts. It means, for example, that when an invoice has three transaction rows there will be three summary transaction rows. When another invoice has the same tax-rate, projects and accounts, then the data will be aggregated in the summary report. Therefore, it will show the smallest group of dimensions.


You can add the following fields to a summary report:

  • Project groups;
  • VAT;
