Recording Owners Draws

Recording Owners' Draws

When owners take money out of a company that is not a corporation, the money is either classified as a loan or a draw. A draw account is an owner account that is increased by the earnings of the company and decreased by the amount of money the owner takes out of the company. Non-corporations need to set up a draw account for each owner. You might want to create a master equity account for all owners and then a subaccount under the master account for each individual owner's draw.

Set Up a Draw Account

Press Ctrl+A to open the Chart of Accounts.

Press Ctrl+N to open the New Account window.

Select Equity in the Typelist.

Enter a name for the account.

Indicate whether this is to be a subaccount of another account.

Enter an optional description.

Click OK to save the account.

Enter the name of the owner who is withdrawing money from the company.
