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?

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.
