Accounting giant Intuit today announced that its popular cloud-based platform QuickBooks has been added to the third-party marketplace of Starling Bank.

The move will enable Starling’s 90,000 business account customers to link their bank account with Quickbooks and share data between the two.

Once connected, the integration won’t just see transactions refresh directly into QuickBooks’ account ledger, but will also let business owners give their accountants instant access to their accounts and even run and link payroll to HMRC.

“Now both QuickBooks and Starling users have the chance to auto-sync, enabling an even faster and easier way for them to reconcile their business accounts and make better informed, real-time, business choices,” said QuickBooks UK Head of Product Shaun Shirazian.

Starling CEO Anne Boden said customers had been “urging” the bank to add Quickbooks integration and that the partnership would give “power back to our customers by letting them use their own data to make better business choices”.

Quickbooks marks Starling’s 11th parter to enter the bank’s Business Marketplace joining the likes of Xero, FreeAgent, Digital Risks and CyberSmart.

As part of Starling’s public commitments it made for its grant of £100m from the Banking Competition Remedies (BCR) fund in February, the bank pledged to launch 48 new partners on its Marketplace for businesses.
