How do I transfer quickbooks cash to my checking account?

I have the steps you're looking for, dtbyachtsystems.

 

There are different ways on how you can record a transfer between two accounts. Here are the following:

 

  • Transfer
  • Check
  • Imported Bank Transaction
  • Journal Entry

 

To create a transfer, you can follow these steps:

 

  1. Go to + New > Transfer.
  2. In the Transfer page, select the cash account from the Transfer Funds From drop-down menu.
  3. Choose the checking account from the Transfer Funds To drop-down list.
  4. Enter the amount in the Transfer Amount field.
  5. Add a Memo.
  6. Click Save and close.

Here's a sample screenshot for a visual guide:

 

 

For the other options, you can read this article: Transfer funds between accounts

How do I transfer quickbooks cash to my checking account?

I have used the very steps you described and it's been over 7 days and the money has not shown up in my checking account. I can usually see if something is pending in my bank account and I checked today and still nothing. Is there a way to tell if it's still in process.

 

Thanks

Hi there, @barry21.

 

I'll help you get QuickBooks Cash funds transferred to your checking account.

 

Make sure that you've connected your bank/checking as an external bank account to transfer money to and from your QuickBooks Cash account. Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Cash Flow menu, then select Transfer money in the QuickBooks Cash section.
  2. Click Transfer in. You won't transfer money yet, we just need to start the connection.
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions.
  4. Enter the bank's name and select a type in the Account Type field. 
  5. Click Next.
  6. Enter your info in the Account number and Routing number fields. Then select Next.
  7. Hit Sounds good.

 

Once done, QuickBooks will send two small deposits to the account within the next three (3) days. Then, you get the confirmation email and come back to QuickBooks to verify the transactions.

 

After setting up everything, you can now transfer money from your QuickBooks Cash account to your bank/checking account.

  1. Go to the Cash Flow menu, then choose Transfer money in the QuickBooks Cash section.
  2. Click Transfer out
  3. In the From field, select your QuickBooks Cash account.
  4. In the To field, select the (+). Then select your connected bank account.
  5. Enter the amount you want to move out of your QuickBooks Cash account.
  6. Hit Finalize transfer.

 

For further reference, feel free to check this article: Get started with the Cash Flow menu.

 

 You may need to put aside funds for upcoming expenses, you can use the cash envelopes for specific purposes or as general funds so you always have money when you need it.

Thanks much. I guess I thought I did this when I set-up the QBcash account but clearly missed this step.

I now have the account linked and just waiting for the test deposits to show up.

Appreciate your quick response.

I have the 2 deposits in my bank account now but no confirmation email from QB. The deposits were made on 2/11/21 so how long will it take to get the confirmation email?

Thanks for keeping us updated, barry21.

 

I'm here to share some information about how QuickBooks Cash account works.

 

After entering the bank information, we'll send a confirmation email and two small deposits to your account within the next 3 days. You may try searching the email in your spam folder. There are times that our notifications will be accidentally tag as spam by the email providers.

 

Although, you can also directly activate your account within QuickBooks Online since you've already received the two deposits. I'll show you how:

 

  1. Sign in to QuickBooks Online.
  2. Select Cash Flow from the sidebar menu.
  3. Click Verify bank, then follow the on-screen instructions.
  4. Enter the two deposit amounts sent from QuickBooks. 
  5. Click Confirm to complete the process.

Now that you're all set up and ready, it's time transfer money in and out of your QuickBooks Cash account. Additionally, I recommend reading our FAQs page to learn the tips and tricks in using the Cash Flow feature.

 

You can always count on the Community if you need more help in managing your account. Assistance is just a post away.
