    We're trying to work out the right way to do this with only some experiences of balance sheets. Its a brand new Quickbooks and brand new company so there is little on there at the moment.

    There was a certain amount of start up costs before the business started trading.

    2 owners, so for example owner A put in £2000 and owner B £2000 which was spent on small items to help the business be set up.

    I want to record them as opening equity but with the capabilities of paying it back as the business begins to make a profit.

    The way I've done it has created a weird movement on the opening balance equity account and after a bit of google research Ive seen that this is a problematic thing for a lot of people.

    SO my basic question is how do I correctly record these start up costs in quickbooks with the ability to be able to pay them back as and when we can.

    Thanks for any advice
