QB Issue Resolution:

For reference:

“I created a Bank a/c called ‘Owner’s Fund’, and deposit $5000 from ‘Owner Contribution’ to ‘Owner’s Fund’.”

You can make that deposit entry in advance, or at the end. That is up to you.

“Now: Owner Contribution is 5000, and Fund is 5000
I enter billed $2000, and paid from ‘Owner’s Fund’.
Now: Owner Contribution is 5000, and Fund is 3000

Next, if I bring the Owner’s Fund to 0,”

You don’t bring it to 0 now. You only “bring it to 0” when it runs negative. And I would not “prefill” it, either. When a purchase has been made, enter that purchase. Make sure to offset it timely, to bring the Bank account from negative to 0.

“where did that $3000 go?”

Well, you would see this, for your example, which really is too much work:

Equity=
5000
-2000
-3000

And Owner Funds Bank=
5000
-2000
-3000

In other words, you removed it as Asset, which removed the Equity you first put in. Which is backwards.

Do it like this:
Owner Bank=
-2000 (expenditure)

Deposit from Equity = 2000
