Are there limits on...

Are there limits on the types of assets that may be capitalized in a new S corporation, ie. fixed assets, inventory, lease improvements, that were paid for by a sister S Corp, and recorded on the sisters books as a distribution in kind?

Accountant's Assistant: The expert will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the expert should know?

I'm trying to avoid due to/from accounts in S corps. with the same ownership.

For example, is sister s liquidating? Spinning off a division or operation? And I assume 100% common ownership.
