It's extremely safe to connect your banks in QuickBooks Self-Employed. Intuit, the company that makes QuickBooks Self-Employed, is a well-established and highly trusted company that supports millions of businesses and customers worldwide, many of whom connect to their banks every day without issues.
How we connect
The type of connection we make to your bank is "read-only." This means that we can access a record of your transactions, but we cannot touch your money (and neither can anyone else). We store passwords and user names in separate, super-secure, encrypted servers that are constantly monitored by the global security firm Symantec.
Why you should connect
Once you connect your bank, you'll see how fast and easy it is to prepare for tax time. You can:
- Label your business expenses with a simple swipe of your finger
- Save a ton of time and hassle on accounting
- Calculate your taxes and earnings much more accurately than typing by hand
