Activity Report

Activity Report


An activity report is a line-by-line breakdown of revenue and expenditures. A lot of information can be gained by understanding what is on an activity report. This report is useful for spotting unapproved expenses or revenue. It also provides more detail than the Guideline Report.

The header notes the dates included in the report.
