Use the Bank Transfer option in Add/Edit Transactions when you need to transfer funds between two checking accounts that are assigned to different bank accounts.

You can use the fund principal account for that fund as the offset account, or set up an account specifically used as an offset account for bank transfers. Because bank transfers involve two separate banks, one transaction debits one bank and another credits the other bank.

Transferring to accounts within the same bank

If accounts associated with the same bank account are being transferred, you may receive an error message. You can change the bank associated with the checking account, use a different account, or enter two separate transactions to transfer the money.
