Shortly, and for the first time, I will have to prepare a few (formal) 
reports for my company. And after that, life goes on.

So far I have been happy with the default profit/loss and balance 
reports, but:

In profit/loss reporting I would like to see a difference in result 
before and after tax, as the amount of payable tax, which I currently 
have included as a normal expense account, depends on the result 
"before". Not really nasty, and correcting stuff manually is not too 
hard, but having a report showing result-before-tax separately would be 
Any good ideas?

I probably will decide to keep the retained earnings (after tax) within 
the company, so I would like to add/transfer those to some "general 
reserve" equity account.
How do I do this in a correct way?
