QuickBooks Cash is now called QuickBooks Checking. The name change will start in mid-December.

QuickBooks Checking is an all-in-one business bank account that is free to open, doesn't require a minimum balance or charge monthly service fees². Services and features include a virtual and physical debit card¹, 1.00% APY on balances, bill pay and instant deposit with QuickBooks Payments at no additional cost for eligible customers³. Small business owners can take advantage of these features all within QuickBooks, and since QuickBooks Checking is integrated with QuickBooks Online, payments and expenditures sync, automatically keeping the books up to date.
