In less than two years, more than 150,000 small businesses have signed up for a QuickBooks Checking account which has zero opening fees, no minimum balance requirements and no monthly maintenance fees.* Since January 2021 alone, QuickBooks Checking’s active customer base has grown 4x and more than one-third of those customers are new small businesses operating for a year or less.
As an online and mobile-optimized banking solution, small businesses can apply for a QuickBooks Checking account in minutes and access a range of services and features, including a debit card (physical and virtual)*, a competitive 1.00% APY* on all balances, and bill pay* (checks and ACH) at no additional fee. Integrated with QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Checking also works seamlessly with QuickBooks Payments, which processes $91 billion in annual volume, instantly depositing funds from processed transactions for same-day use at no extra cost for eligible customers.*
“Thousands of small businesses are turning to QuickBooks Checking to manage their cash flow and we’re laser focused on continuing to refine and design an even more robust banking experience with their specific needs in mind,” said Rania Succar, Senior Vice President of QuickBooks Money Offerings. “A banking solution that’s seamlessly integrated with the QuickBooks platform accelerates our ability to deliver tremendous benefits to small businesses and support them with complete visibility of and fast access to their money, all with total reliability.”
QuickBooks Checking will continue to offer industry-leading banking services small business customers have come to love including two key features that help customers better manage their overall cash flow. The Cash Flow Planner* delivers powerful insights to help plan for the future by predicting cash flow 90 days out leveraging machine learning and data analysis. The planner proactively alerts business owners when cash flow might become a concern and provides recommendations on how to navigate potential challenges.
Another QuickBooks Checking feature small businesses will continue to enjoy is Envelopes*, which allows them to partition money for planned or unexpected expenditures and avoid spending funds before their intended use. Small businesses commonly use the Envelopes feature to set aside funds for expenses like taxes and payroll. Sales tax in particular is something businesses need to plan for and trying to manage this manually can take significant time and energy. By applying advanced machine learning, QuickBooks Checking will also be streamlining this process for small businesses with the introduction of Sales Tax Automation*. Coming soon, this feature will automatically set aside sales tax for payments in a sales tax envelope.
QuickBooks Checking is also introducing new features to create an even more powerful one-stop business banking solution. New features include:
- Mobile Check Deposit*, giving small businesses the ability to accept checks from customers or vendors and deposit those funds into their account seamlessly from anywhere. Mobile check deposit will begin rolling out to eligible QuickBooks Checking customers in the coming weeks.
- A Virtual Debit Card* made available immediately upon account approval, giving customers greater flexibility to start spending their balance even before their physical debit card arrives.
- Apple Pay/Google Pay*, delivering even more convenience, flexibility and speed in making purchases with your debit card in-store and online.
