How to Create a Memorized Transfer in QuickBooks

In Brief...

If your business performs weekly or monthly money transfers, save data entry time by creating a memorized transfer in QuickBooks.

This feature works the same in versions 2011–2016 of QuickBooks.


  1. From the menu, select Banking > Transfer Funds. The Transfer Funds Between Accounts dialog box opens.

  2. Fill out the details for the transfer.

  5. When you finish, click OK.

  6. Save or cancel the open transfer transaction.

To create a memorized transaction, you must create a new transaction or open an existing transaction. If the transaction that you want QuickBooks to memorize already exists, open it and ensure it is the transaction currently in view, then use the steps above to memorize it.
