Thanks for your fast answer.

How much work would it be to patch Gnucash, to add that option?

I would really like to avoid such manipulations.

That would be too much work.

No. My kayak club has a contract with a local administration, and each
year we have to deliver a profit/loss report with special coefficients
for most accounts. For example 75% of the pay for our employee, 30% of
electricity and so on. That is because we deliver services for the local
authority and they consider that our employee spends 75% of his time for
the services and 25% for your club.

I'm the treasurer and I have to make a normal report for the club (no
coefficients at all) and another for this contract.
