Why is there a Line for Previous Unrealized Gain or Loss on the Transaction Report?
The Transaction Report shows an entry for Previous Unrealized Gain or Loss for accounts having open foreign transactions (either Account Payable or Accounts Receivable).
In order for QuickBooks Online to display the appropriate unrealized gain or loss for the current reporting period, this row reverses the unrealized gain or loss from the current reporting period.
The Previous Gain or Loss row does not display on the Transaction Report for foreign bank accounts since realized profits or losses do not need to be reversed across periods.
