Connecting a bank account in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

Connecting your bank account to QuickBooks Self-Employed will save you hours of manual data entry. Your bank and credit card companies already store information about the money going in and out of your accounts. When you connect an account, you bring those transactions directly into our app automatically, and you can speedily separate personal transactions from work-related ones and put them into the right tax categories. Connecting all of your work-related accounts will give you the best overall picture of your self-employment finances and you won't need to create an entry for all of your transactions one by one. 

The connection is "read-only", and no one (except you) can touch your money.
