Owners depositing money into business

assuming the business is taxed as a sole proprietor or partnership, deposit the funds and use owner equity investment as the source account for the deposit

 

For a company taxed as a sole proprietor (schedule C) or partnership (form 1065), I recommend you have the following for owner/partner equity accounts  (one set for each partner if a partnership)

[name] Equity (do not post to this account it is a summing account)
>> Equity
>> Equity Drawing - you record value you take from the business here
>> Equity Investment - record value you put into the business here

How would this work for a sole proprietorship in QuickBooks Self-Employed? There aren't Owner's Deposit or Equity Investment categories, on Transfer or Personal Deposit. I don't want to categorize it as income since it's already taxed money.

Thank you for joining this thread, @IlluminatedLivingLLC.

 

Allow me to share details on how to categorize your transactions. Let's get started.

 

When you deposit money to your business account as capital or investment, this type of transactions is considered as a Transfer. You can put categorize this type of transactions as Transfers: Owner's Deposit or Personal Deposit.
