This article covers the basic workflow of recording transactions using the register window.
For Basic information and terminologies, see QuickBooks Desktop Register.
In QuickBooks Desktop, Bank Account Register can represent a checking, savings, money market or petty cash. Hence you can record transactions directly into a bank register instead of using Write Checks and make deposit windows. However, we don't recommend this unless you have a background in accounting.
Benefits of using the Register
How to Access the Register
It is possible to transfer accounts between balance sheet accounts. For Example, you may need to transfer funds from Savings account to Checking account to cover an unexpected company expense.
Step One: Record the payment using the Register
Send the Payment
When recording a transaction in a register, you have an option to "split" the transaction across different accounts, customers, jobs or classes which will allow you track where you money goes more accurately.
