Intuit (Nasdaq: INTU) today announced Money by QuickBooks, the latest addition to a comprehensive and ever-expanding suite of QuickBooks offerings that power small businesses with the ability to get paid and manage their cash flow.
The Money by QuickBooks mobile app available for free on iOS and Android is designed to give entrepreneurs, freelancers and sole proprietors just starting their business journey complete control over their money with the ability to accept payments and manage expenses with features including debit card and bill payment capabilities. It brings QuickBooks’ expertise in financial services to a rapidly growing audience of new small business owners who may not yet need our platform’s full range of accounting capabilities but are still seeking powerful tools to manage their money end-to-end.
“The pandemic has driven the number of small business starts to historic highs, and we have a unique opportunity to expand the reach of our financial services expertise to even more new entrepreneurs,” said Rob Daniel, Director of Product Management for Intuit QuickBooks Money Offerings. “These small businesses tell us they want fintech to help them feel in control of their money and cash flow, whether that’s getting paid quickly or having greater visibility into their finances. Money by QuickBooks does just that and puts these tools right in the hands of small businesses allowing them to lay the foundation for growth and success.”
Once the app is downloaded, it takes just minutes to apply for a Money by QuickBooks account* which has no monthly fees or minimum balance requirements* and empowers business owners with the ability to:
● Request and accept payments in a variety of ways, including debit, credit and ACH transfer, without the need for their customers to have the app.*
● Access business cash wherever, whenever with same-day deposit at no extra fee* for payments accepted through the app, or by using the free QuickBooks Visa® business debit card, which enables access to over 19,000 Allpoint ATMs nationwide.*

At QuickBooks, our innovation is driven by our deep understanding of the unique needs of small businesses at each stage of their journey. This approach powered the development of Money by QuickBooks at a critical time as new business owners are increasingly turning to digital, mobile-first offerings. A 2021 study by QuickBooks found that nearly one third (30%) of those who process payments using mobile payment apps started doing so during the pandemic. Customer insights are also fueling how we continue to enhance the Money by QuickBooks experience. Now, our digitally inclined Money by QuickBooks customers are supported with even stronger in-app money management capabilities including a new user interface introduced this month that makes it easier to get a clear view into their cash flow and easily track payments activity.
Money by QuickBooks will continue to add even more powerful banking features in-app that support earning, spending and managing money including mobile check deposit and the ability to use your debit card via Apple Pay and Google Pay wallets, each of which is expected to begin rolling out to customers in the coming weeks.
QuickBooks’ suite of money products encompasses payments, capital and banking services that are designed specifically to help small business customers grow and run their business, deliver faster access to their money and improve cash flow management with integrated, intelligent forecasting and planning capabilities. Money by QuickBooks is the newest extension of the platform and leverages expertise, insights and learnings from decades of working with small businesses and gleaned since the first business bank account for QuickBooks customers, QuickBooks Cash, launched in 2020. QuickBooks Cash and Money by QuickBooks showcase Intuit’s transformation of business banking from a store of funds to a hub with true predictability of cash flow, creating a purpose-built bank account, provided by our partner Green Dot Bank. Money by QuickBooks also leverages Intuit’s leadership in payments, processing $91 billion in volume annually, to help small businesses get paid fast.
