I am trying to recreate a Balance Sheet for a company. The business assets were purchased in 2017 and up until mid last year, the bookkeeping was not maintained well. I am trying to figure out how to recreate retained earnings from the tax returns filed. It is a partnership. Right now I have all information from 2019 entered and the profit and loss is correct for 2019. I know that $7650 was invested at the time of purchase and that two loans were taken out to purchase the assets. When I started the company file, I started the existing bank balances with the beginning offset to retained earnings. I also have some items in the 2018 profit and loss because they were needed to reconcile the bank accounts. Suggestions?
