ACH information

Due to the pandemic we had vendors that are requiring payment by ACH vs. check and under the vendor information there isn't a tab to enter the ACH information into.  We process these ACH payments ourselves.  Right now I have the ACH information in the address area.  Does anyone know of better way to do this?

ACH information

Thanks for your question, @tawnyz. Let's ensure the ACH payment matches the bill that you've entered in QuickBooks Desktop. This way, they can be linked to each other to keep your records accurate and ready for reconciliation

 

Here's how: 

 

  1. Go to the Banking menu.
  2. Click Bank Feeds 
  3. Then, select Bank Feeds Center and review the transactions in each category.

 

For more insights, check out this article: Add and match Bank Feed transactions in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

You can also read through this article in case you'll want to create rules to categorize your transactions in QuickBooks: Use renaming rules for Bank Feeds.

 

Let me know if you need further help matching ACH payments to bills in QuickBooks.

Hi

 

At this present time we do not have a bank feed of any sort.  We cut our own checks and don't have our bank accounts transactions downloaded.  What are the pros and cons of using a bank feed?  Is there a additional cost on quick book side?

Thanks for getting back to us, @tawnyz.

 

Bank Feeds is the online banking feature in QuickBooks Desktop that lets you connect to your financial institution so you can download transactions and use other online services. This lets you download bank transactions so you don't have to record them manually.

 

You can set up bank and credit card accounts for online banking in single-user and multi-user mode. This will connect up to 40 accounts. If you need more than that, separate the accounts you need to connect between two or more company files.

 

However, before you start here are a few things to keep in mind:

 

  • You can't download transactions into the same QuickBooks Desktop company file more than once. If, your bank may be able to reopen the transactions on their side so QuickBooks can download them again. Reach out to your bank to get help with this.
  • Web connect only works with .qbo files. Other types like QFX and QIF Quicken files won't work. There are a few third-party applications that can handle QIF available on the Intuit Marketplace.
  • Some banks let you set a date range for downloads. If your bank doesn't have this option, you automatically get the maximum number of transactions available the first time you download. This may be 30, 60, 90 days, or more depending on the bank.

 

Also, there are no fees associated with using Bank Feeds in QuickBooks. The charges that you get might be related to the use of a bank's service and QuickBooks Technical Support if you need expert assistance when using and setting up Bank Feeds.
