Can I manually add a bank account? Every time I try to use the excel sheet in CSV file that I have, the transactions are being categorized as Cash instead of Checking.

Our bank has been closed and cannot be linked/ connected in Quickbooks self-employed but I need to have a separate account for the transactions I like to upload. 


Thank you for posting, wcsvcs.

I'm here to share some information about importing a CSV file in QuickBooks Self-Employed. 

If you don't have any banks connected to your QuickBooks Self-Employed account, the CSV file that you import will be tagged under the Cash Account. You'll have to connect your online banking account to QBSE to bring in your transactions and import CSV file under a certain account.

I can see the importance of being able to create an account where to add your imported transactions. What I can do is send this as feedback to be considered in future enhancements of QBSE. 

You can check this Import transactions from earlier date ranges article for more information. Also, if you're still new to QBSE, check this QuickBooks Self-Employed Overview article to learn more about the product.

That should do it. Let me know if you are still need further assistance or if you need more help concerning your CSV file, by leaving a comment below. I'll be here to help. Have a wonderful day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
