My new quickbooks cash account has a unique routing and checking number. Can I order and writes checks from this specific account?

Let me provide some insights about ordering and writing checks in QuickBooks Online, @austin-f3group-u.

 

Writing checks from QuickBooks cash account isn't possible in QBO. Check is a vendor transaction while QuickBooks cash account (with QB Payments integrated) is a monthly fee-free checking account within QBO. This is where all of the customer payments get deposited. 

 

You can move the money from QuickBooks Cash to an external business bank account. Then, you can already write checks. 

 

Here's how: 

  1. Go to the + New button.
  2. Under Vendors, choose Check.
  3. Select the Payee from the drop-down list.
  4. Specify the Bank Account where the money will be withdrawn.
  5. Complete the check fields. 
  6. Once done, click Save and close or Save and new.

I've also added this article that can guide you on how to print checks in QuickBooks Online: Print checks.

Thanks. I would like to separate myself entirely from the bank and use only quickbooks cash.  But it appears that I still must be tied to a bank to make owner draws or similar transactions?

Thanks. I would like to separate myself from the bank but this does not seem possible as it appears I still need a bank to facilitate transactions like owner draws or estimated tax payments?

Yes, that is correct @austin-f3group-u.


As mentioned by my colleague above, the QuickBooks Cash account is a fee-free checking account within QuickBooks that only handles your customer payments.


If you need funds for personal matters, you may consider moving them to an external business bank account or use the QuickBooks Debit Card. Your QuickBooks Debit Card works like other debit cards. You can utilize it to have cash amounts and make purchases. But you’ll have to make sure it is activated.


Here’s how:

 

  1. Go to the Cash Flow menu.
  2. In the Debit Card info section, select Activate card.
  3. Create a PIN, then select Next.
  4. Enter the card number, expiration date, and CVV.
  5. Select Confirm.


The QuickBooks platform tracks and manages your business finances while benefiting from an all-in-one bank account that provides access to your cash whenever you need it.


You can read these resources for depth understanding of QuickBooks Cash accounts and the Cash Flow menu. It gives you details for everything, including envelopes and the Cash Flow planner.
