QB Issue Resolution:

For this S corp, you should have a structure something like this:

Shareholder Equity: subaccounts for Capital and for Distribution.

The Capital is NOT where the new funds are going. The Capital account should be what is paid in for Shares issued and held. Also, the shares held and their Equity needs to match for % held. If you and I are 50/50 shareholders, the Equity always must be 50/50, as well.

Further investments and any distributions have to be pro rata to shares held, or it is not an Equity activity.

That means the differences are handled as Owed To, or Owed From: Shareholder. Also, when someone states, “Well, we are 50/50 shareholders but Bob works twice as hard” then Bob gets paid more through Payroll.

And year end Net Assets (Retained Earnings) is allocated per the shares held, as well.
