Why you need to connect your bank account with QuickBooks
One of the many benefits of QuickBooks Online that you can save a lot of time automatically downloading your banking transaction into QuickBooks instead of manually inputting each transaction. Most big banks allow you to quickly and easily connect to your QuickBooks. Some of the smaller banks and credit unions do not have that capability. And if you don’t have a business bank account and are using a personal bank account then we recommend you that setting up a separate bank account for your business as soon as possible. It is always best practice from an accounting and tax standpoint to keep business and personal activity separate.
Some Reminders Before Download the Bank Transaction:
- Back up the QuickBooks company file before any download or import so that you can always start if needed.
- It is not possible to download transactions more than once in the same QuickBooks desktop company file. However, your financial institution may be able to “issue” transactions on its behalf, so QuickBooks can download them again. You have to contact your FI to see if they have this capability.
- Currently, only Web Connect data can be imported into the QuickBooks desktop.
- QFX and QIF files are Quick Financial data files that cannot be imported into the QuickBooks desktop. QuickBooks may have more options for importing quiff files using a third-party application available on the Intuit marketplace.
Download Bank Transactions in QuickBooks
There have two types of methods you can download bank feed transactions.
- The first time you download a transaction will include the maximum number of transactions (this can be more than a year of transactions in some cases). You will need to match any new transactions, then delete the remaining (already matched/added) transactions by removing the statement.

- Some banks offer the option to select the date range for the transaction for download. If your bank does not offer this option, you will get the maximum number of transactions downloaded by your financial institution for the first time. It can be 30, 60, 90 days or more.
