Set up bank feeds in QuickBooks pro 2019 QuickBooks desktop 2019. Bank feeds can save a lot of time by reducing the data entry. Although bank feeds save a lot of time they can also cause problems and bookkeepers need to be aware of what banks feeds do and what bank feeds do not do.
The set up process for bank feeds is fairly easy, although it can take more steps then the Online version of QuickBooks and the bank may charge more fees.
To set up bank feeds we will need the name of the banking institution and our log in information. The bank may ask for a second security verification like e-mail or phone verification.
Once set up we will typically need to download transactions from the bank periodically. We can generally get data for the first 30 to 90 days depending on the banking institution.
When using bank feeds we need to be carefull that we are not imputing duplicate transactions into the QuickBooks system.
After we download transactions from the bank they will not all go directly into the QuickBooks data used to create financial statements but will first need approval.
In other words, we will need to complete any needed information provided by the bank that QuickBooks needs and approve the banking information before it is included in our financial data in QuickBooks.
