How can i add a second checking account to my quickbooks?

Good day, laurenllc2019.

 

You can follow these steps on how you can add the second account:

 

  1. Go to Accounting > Chart of Accounts.
  2. Click the New button.
  3. In the Account window, select Bank from the Account Type and choose Checking from the Detail Type.
  4. Enter the NameDescription, and Balance.
  5. Hit the Save and Close button.

 

For reference, here's an article: Add an account to your chart of accounts in QuickBooks Online.

 

If you want to connect this account for online banking, then you can open this article for the instructions: Connect bank and credit card accounts to QuickBooks Online.

I'm also adding these articles if you are adding the account as sub-account:

 

 

I'm just a post away if you need anything else. Take care!

Hello, Dorothy. 

 

I'll share some details about the Account and Detail Type names in QuickBooks Online. 

 

The Account and Detail Types vary from country to country in QuickBooks Online. It looks like you have a non-US version, which is why you're seeing different choices for the types. 

 

You can select Cash and cash equivalents and set the Detail Type to Bank. Next, you'll want to enter a name such as "Checking account." Click Save and Close afterwards.

I want to add a 2nd checking account to my quickbooks online, but I want to keep the income and expense totally separate on the two accounts. Can I still do this with one version of quickbooks or do I need to purchase another copy?

Hey there, @FreeReelin.

 

Are you trying to separate the income and expense transactions for both accounts in your Profit and Loss report?

 

If this is what you're trying to do, then you can simply filter the distribution account of your report to view your transactions separately. Let me show how:

 

  1. Go to Reports and open the Profit and Loss report.
  2. Click Customize, then go to the Filter section.
  3. Choose the bank account in the Distribution Account drop-down list.
  4. Click Run report.

Using these steps will help you review your income and expenses easily. In case you need to compare them, you can simply print these reports. All you have to do is to click the Print icon beside the Export icon. 

 

Additionally, here are some articles that will help you in managing your reports in QuickBooks Online (QBO): 

 

 

If you're referring to something else, just add your details and I'll be there to further assist you. Have a great day ahead.
