Did you Close Equity into Retained Earning for last year?

At the end of each year, QuickBooks closes net income into Retained Earnings yet Owner Draws or Shareholder Distributions needs a Journal Entry to be adjusted.

I created a how-to video to explain how retained earnings and Equity accounts work.

Tip: If you are behind on your closing entries you can go back and adjust one year at a time.

Looking for the training on “How to enter Depreciation into QuickBooks”.
