How do I add a bank account without connecting?

I have a business checking account and a personal checking account, both at the same bank.  I want to manually create a bank account in Quickbooks Self-Employed for the business account only.  I am willing to import or enter business transactions manually.


Thank you for posting here in the Community, billpigula.

I can share some information on how to add your bank transactions in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

At this time, there's no feature in QuickBooks Self-Employed to create an account manually. You'll need to connect your bank to add your transactions under this account.

If you don't want to connect bank account, you can manually add the transactions and or import your using a CSV file. However, this will be tagged under cash account.

If you'll connect your bank account, you can hide your personal checking. This will not permanently remove your transactions from QBSE.

To know more about these, check the following articles:

That information should get you going. Let me know if you follow-up questions about the information provided in adding your bank transactions. I'm always glad to help in any way I can. Have a great rest of the 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.
