I have two bank accounts and would like to record transfers between both the bank accounts whats the best way ,whats the best way to record cash withdrawals from bank?


Hi gdkjumeirah,

You can use the Transfer funds feature to transfer money from one bank account to another. Let me provide you the steps: 

  1. Click the Plus icon (+) on the Toolbar.
  2. Select Transfer
  3. From the Transfer Funds From drop down list, select the bank account that the funds are coming out of.
  4. From the Transfer Funds To drop down list, select the bank account the funds are being deposited into.
  5. In the Transfer Amount field, enter the amount being transferred.
  6. Edit the Date.
  7. Enter a description of the transfer in the Memo field.
  8. Click Save and close.
Also, you can set up a petty cash account in your chart of accounts so you'll be able to track your cash flow. Once done record Petty Cash as an Expense account if you wrote a check for cash. Please check this article for the detailed steps: How to Set Up Petty Cash.

Don't hesitate to let us know if you have other questions. I'll make sure to get back to you.

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.
