P&L reports showing different amounts when viewing monthly vs. annually



I have a customer that is having a discrepancy when running his P&L reports. They typically run the reports in this format for comparison:

Annual report, one month


Monthly dates from the beginning of the year

This is how they compare to make sure that their numbers are consistent.

However, the results show a different amounts in each report for the months.

If we change the dates to show monthly/one month and annually/one month, those total match.

This is not a new process for them, they typically use this method. Can anyone explain why this is happening? Or make suggestions on how to create an accurate report for comparison?

Thanks for any assistance!
