RAH has created an account named Unrestricted net Assets in a partnership balance sheet and put a transaction that was coded to retained earnings to this account. I've never seen this before. Can someone help with this one. From what I've read it should only show in a not for profit balance sheet. How can I fix this?

It's an account that Reckon activates which recognises the amount of funds/assets that have the potential to be available to the partners. It is classified as unrestricted assets due the structure of partnerships ie. partners can have direct access to those funds. If you look at your Balance Sheet the amount of the Unrestricted Assets represents the difference between your Assets and Liabilities.

I would suggest speaking to your accountant about it if you need any further information.
