How to record extraordinary items in Quickbooks Business Incorporated?

We use Quickbooks Business Accountant 2010. 

We have to enter several items following some fire losses. We had a building that has been 30% destroyed by fire and then we found asbestos in it. Government regulations forced us to remove all asbestos which led to demolishing 95% of the building. So, we lost all equipment within the building and the building itself. Asbestos decontamination has been paid from our insurance proceeds to the point that there are insufficient funds to reconstruct the building. The insurance paid us the equipment loss save the deductible which made us realize a loss for the content too. 

How do we record all these aspects in Quickbooks?

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.
