Multiple Bank Accounts in QuickBooks
If you use multiple bank accounts for your business, QuickBooks lets you preselect which bank account to use to write checks, pay bills, pay sales tax, or to make deposits. Setting this up in advance makes it unlikely that you will use the wrong account for the wrong task. To choose which default accounts to use:
- Choose Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks menu bar.
- Click the Checking icon on the left pane to open the QuickBooks Checking preferences, and click the My Preferences tab.
- Check each QuickBooks activity (Write Checks, Pay Bills, Pay Sales Tax, Make Deposits) for which you want to preselect a bank account.
- To the right of each QuickBooks activity that you have checked, use the pull-down menu to select which bank account to use.
