    Re: as well as

    There are so many changes to be described in this report, that i need to use variations. "and" has already been used several times, so i was looking for some other ways, and the "as well as..." thing came up, but i was (am) unsure of how to use it.

    You could try this for variation:

    "Trade receivables grew by $xx at the same time as Tax Payable grew by $yy"

    or:

    'Trade receivables grew, as well as Tax payables, the former by $xx and the latter by $yy.
