Statement of Changes in Equity
 
You can also choose to show the Statement of Changes in Equity. This option is only available for the 9-column financial statement format. This can be used when the entity structure is set to Limited Company and the Statement of Retained Earnings is set to show as a separate statement. The Statement of Changes in Equity is largely manual although it does link to the opening/closing balances for some of the items, e.g. Retained Earnings and Share Capital. The Statement of Changes in Equity needs to be manually reconciled.
