P&L differs from Balance Sheet

I’m doing accounts for a small golf club and I’m not an accountant.
On the Balance Sheet the line ‘P&L Account’ shows a figure that is quite different from the ‘Profit Before Tax’ line on the P&L report.
I can’t think how that is possible or where to start looking.
Can anybody offer a suggestion?

Are all the previous accounting years properly closed?

The P&L report shows only the transactions from within the selected year, but the balance sheet “P&L account” will include all years up to the date you’ve selected for the balance sheet that have not had their year end journals created.

That’s possible, I’ll check tomorrow, thanks

Yes! That was the problem. Now fixed - Thank you so much.
