Unequal partnership distributions
In QuickBooks the account is made with the partners as owner which means two or three people can invest in a company and then start it so that the partner shares the profit and loss equally with all the details entered that is the investments or funds.
In unequal partnership distribution the partners are analysed with the funds they have given in terms of all the transactions and during the end of the company which means if the company is closing the reason behind the close could be anything. But according to the funds contribution the partnership distribution is analysed.
If the partners are with same funds and investments any of the partner can leave or quit working by taking the 50% of turnover where all the analytics are calculated. If the company is in loss all the partners has to suffer the amount or the source and if it is in profit then the profit amount distribution is equally divided to partners and only if the contract is been signed by a partner regarding the amount distribution then id would be unequal distribution for the partners.
In QuickBooks the sales order and purchase order are kept calculated for the company file and all the transactions sequence with all the minor and major details of payment and expense are saved in Quickbooks for the future purpose if ant kind of equal or unequal distributions are done among the partners.
Money could be taken out of the partnership through three ways, which are quite common:
- Distributions of income
- Loans to partners
- Returns of capital
1. Distributions of Income
There are separate allocation methods that are used in distribution of the partnership net income:
- Partner’s relative capital investment
- Specified ratios
- Partner’s service contribution
Combination of the methods mentioned above could also be used.
Relative capital investment of every partner, is the method which is widely used for the allocation of partnership net income.
2. Loans to Partners
Partners are able to borrow from partnerships. In order to record the loans given to the partners from partnership, get the Notes Receivable account created. Promissory note is to be prepared and the partners should be asked to sign the same. This note must have the loan terms.
For example: interest rate, installment payment amounts, repayment date, late payment penalties principal amount to be financed etc.
3. Returns of Capital
You can withdraw all your money from the partnership by taking back the capital investment made by you. Return of the capital you invested is not at all taxable. If in case the partnership is liquidated and the amount received by you is more than the capital investment, then this excess amount will be termed as capital gain. If the amount received by you is less then it is called capital loss.
