A batch report is a financial report that includes various individual items over a specified date range or other parameters. Often a batch report will include what some financial professionals call performance information, relevant to certain business process. One of the most common uses of batch reports is in providing information on credit card transactions for many different kinds of businesses.

Many different kinds of workers will be familiar with batch reports. Even relatively informal or localized accounting, such as accounting for individual restaurants and hotels, will include these items in daily or weekly reckoning of financial operations. Night audit hotel staff, for example, will often be familiar with the use of simple batch reports to evaluate credit card transaction information. It's common for staffers to run these reports on a regular basis to view aspects of daily operations, or to confirm and process transactions.

New technology enables many various kinds of batch reports that help businesses in different ways. Customized automated batch report processes are possible with much of the modern accounting software currently available. This helps businesses to more accurately analyze their financial operations.

In using batch reports, it’s very important for accountants to have the tools that they need to present the specific range of items that they want. It’s also important for them to know what to focus on, whether it’s for daily accounts, weekly accounts, or end-of-the-year presentations for tax filing. Professional accountants understand how to use batch reports in the ways that will best benefit their employers or clients.

Part of the issue with batch report accounting is the method of storage that is used for these reports. After viewing them, business leaders need to figure out how to safely and effectively keep these items, or the data behind them, on file. Some of this is facilitated through modern methods like Software as a Service (SaaS). Other businesses rely on their own internal servers, located anywhere in the world, that will effectively hold all of the useful information about financial operations that the company or enterprise needs to evaluate profits, provide for tax returns, or for other purposes.
