Linking your Starling Bank account to QuickBooks Online

by Intuit Updated 5 months ago

Spaces are a unique way to save funds towards specific goals by allocating money into different “Spaces” (similar to “pots”) of savings, which are separated from the main account balance.

How do I use Starling Spaces?

You can use Starling Spaces to allocate funds towards different financial goals or purposes. For example, you can create a Space for a holiday fund, a Space for emergency savings, or a Space for specific purchases. By keeping the funds in separate Spaces, you can easily track your progress towards each goal and manage your finances more effectively.

When connecting your Starling account to QuickBooks Online, you have two options to choose from:

1. Starling Bank

This option includes round-up transactions and manual transfers to each individual Space. It’s important to note that each space is not a data feed on its own, only the movement to and from each space is included.

2. Starling Bank without Spaces

This option does not include any transaction movement (round-ups or manual transfers) to any Spaces. This is a great option for if you want to keep your finances separate, but don't need the extra functions that come with Spaces.

Payments taken directly from a Starling Space account will appear as a standard account transaction and will not be identified separately from other account transactions.

Disconnect your current Starling Bank account, then select the Starling Bank (without spaces) option when reconnecting.

Note: We recommend talking to your Accountant before doing this.
