In QBO balance sheet, Shareholder Loan (amount owed to company - removed by Shareholder) reduces Retained Earnings. Why does it not do the same in TurboTax for Business?

The Retained Earnings should be decreased as the money was removed from the company legitimately.  The shareholder has 1 year after taxation year end to repay the amount owing, at which point a dividend will be declared to make this repayment.  The corporations' retained earnings should be reduced to show this amount removed from the corporation.



Officially direct importation from QBO is not support so this may be a matter of entering in the amount using the wrong sign example negative number or positive number.  Without seeing the return its very difficult to say where the problem could be, I can confirm that the S125 income statement and S100 balance sheet have no known problems and work perfectly.  I would suggest giving our support line a call at 1-866-438-8020.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
