Retained Earnings account is missing from the Chart of Accounts and reports

The Retained Earnings account is missing from the Chart of Accounts (CoA) or does not appear in reports.

Retained Earnings is an auto generated account in QuickBooks, so it should always appear in a data file.  If one is not present, it may be due to:
  • The account was deleted.
  • The account exists, but has been made inactive
  • The account exists, but has been renamed
  • List damage
