Multi-member LLC draw accounting

I am managing a multi-member LLC with two members. I have set up equity accounts for myself and my partner with sub-accounts for draw, equity, and contributions.


What I don't understand are the actual entries I will make to these accounts to properly account for the first draw we will be taking from the company next month. I also want the company to pay the partners back for some initial contributions and don't understand what entry or entries to make for that either. I cannot find any resources specific to multi-member LLCs. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @AbodeSN , dr draw cr cash. End accounting period after having the report, you could zero the draw amount, dr owner's equity cr draw (also per owner). Comment back, cheers.

We might have to dumb that down a bit for me.


I have seen the term "cash account" thrown around but I don't know how to put one in the chart of accounts.


But so I can see if I understand, I need a cash account. Then I credit Cash, debit the appropriate draw accounts. Does the cash account just represent the total amount of money drawn out of the business from all partners?
