UK-based bank payment company GoCardless has expanded its partnership with financial management software Intuit QuickBooks with two regional app launches.

A new GoCardless app has been introduced in the Intuit QuickBooks marketplaces in Australia and the US, respectively, giving small business users access to direct debit capabilities that can help them reduce late payments and improve cash flow.

The new capabilities mean that, for SMBs, on the date an invoice is due, payments are automatically collected directly from their customers’ bank accounts and reconciled on the Intuit Quickbooks platform.

It builds on the existing integration between GoCardless and Intuit QuickBooks which began in the UK and Ireland in 2016.

QuickBooks’ SMB users can now find the GoCardless app in the Australian Intuit QuickBooks Marketplace and in the US Intuit QuickBooks Marketplace.

Seb Hempstead, vice president of partnerships at GoCardless, said: “Our partnership with Intuit Quickbooks is one way we can make life easier for small businesses in this tough economic environment.

“By reducing late and failed payments – plus the associated admin – and enabling automatic reconciliation, we can free up cash flow and keep costs down.”

He added: “We’re excited to launch our apps in Australia and the US. Not only does this build on our long-standing relationship with Intuit QuickBooks, it also underscores our commitment to bringing the benefits of bank payments to small businesses everywhere.”

Recently, GoCardless also expanded its partnership with Sage, meaning that it will provide bank payments to more businesses within Sage’s customer base, via an integration with Sage’s flagship cloud accounting solutions for SMBs – Sage Accounting and Sage Intacct.
