QuickTips™: Voiding vs Deleting Checks by QuickBooks® Made Easy™

This month’s QuickTips deals with voiding versus deleting your checks. While I am using QuickBooks® 2013 this will work on any version. You want to void or delete your check to make sure your books are current and reflecting your correct balance. When you void a check QuickBooks® will edit the check by changing the dollar amount and adding the word “Void” on the memo line. Voiding a check allows you to keep a reocrd of it. When you delete a check QuickBooks® will remove the check completely. Remember, 9 times out of 10 you will want to void a check to keep a record for your CPA.

QuickTips from the Video

  1. Do let QuickBooks® create journal entries for your voided check if the check was in a prior period.
  2. Run a “Missing Check” Report to see all of the checks that Quickbooks® has a record of and to see if any are missing.
