Did you Close Equity into Retained Earnings in QuickBooks for last year?

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

I created a “How to” video to explain: Retained earnings and Equity accounts. 

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

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