this should be a good starter:
select convert(varchar(7), your_date_field, 120) yyy_mn , count(*), sum(somefield)
  from yourtable
group by convert(varchar(7), your_date_field, 120)

Alternatively, if you want your month and year separately displayed, you could try:
SELECT MyYear, 
       MyMonth,
       COUNT(*) AS MonthYearCount
FROM
(
SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(4), your_date_field, 120) AS MyYear,
       CONVERT(VARCHAR(2), your_date_field, 110) AS MyMonth 
FROM   yourtable
) Z
GROUP BY MyYear, 
         MyMonth;

I usually use this formula to get the vaue in YYYYMM format because it is easier when you sort. Sorts by first Year and then by Month:
SELECT  Year(Date)*100+Month(Date) as YearMth, SUM(Columns) Column
From    TableName
Group by Year(Date)*100+Month(Date)
Order by Year(Date)*100+Month(Date)

How about this:

SELECT
       CLIENT=MYCLIENTNAME,
       HOWMANY=COUNT(*),
       COST=SUM(MYCOST),
       nMonth=DATEPART(month,MYDATE),
       nYEAR=DATEPART(year,MYDATE)

FROM
        MYTABLE

GROUP BY MYCLIENTNAME, DATEPART(month,MYDATE), DATEPART(year,MYDATE)

ORDER BY MYCLIENTNAME, DATEPART(month,MYDATE), DATEPART(year,MYDATE)
Hope this help!
