When we first started using quickbooks our own bank account was not linked, so some of our initial deposits are in some quickbooks bank. I want them transferred to our own bank.

How to transfer money from Quickbooks Go bank to my own bank account

Hi, thanks for your response.  When I go to transfer and "transfer funds from" the quickbooks bank is not an option.  The funds were originally in some account called quickbooks envelopes and I transferred them to our operating account.  Our balance sheet in quickbooks is accurate.  However, the money was never deposited to our operating bank account.

Hi there, @kco1006.

 

The transfer will take a little longer when you transfer the funds directly from QuickBooks Envelopes to the operating account.

 

For more details about QuickBooks cash flows, you can check this article: Create envelopes to set your funds aside. From there, you can follow the steps written in the "Take money out of an envelope" section when you transfer funds from QuickBooks again.

 

For faster transfer, you can follow these steps next time: Take money out from QuickBooks Envelope> take money out Cash AccountBank Account.

 

Also, make sure to categorize periodically your transactions in the Banking menu.

 

Please let me know if you have additional questions. Anytime I can help. Take care, and more power to your business!
