  2. I accidentally ruined three checks. Printed something on the check stock. I just want to delete them or void them so it shows on my register that these checks are not outstanding. I can’t figure out how. using 2000 Premier Edition

  3. I printed a bill and the check printed out wrong , We have a vendor in which we have 2 separate accounts with. There is an upstairs and down stairs. Each have different account numbers using QB 2021 , The check printed out with the total amount for both bills, instead of printing them seperately

  4. I want to void a check (it was lost in the mail, i have already canceled it with my bank) but then reissue it under a new check number. how do i do this? ,I purchased it this year so it must be 2021

  5. How do I void a BILL in QB on-line. Not the check. I did that already. The bill keeps pops up as unpaid. Is there a journal entry or delete the BILL?

  6. I cannot seem to unvoid a check in QuickBooks Desktop 2021. I followed the steps from this link , but in my version of QuickBooks Desktop, there is no Events Filter or History Column. What do I do to unvoid a check now?

  7. There must be a better way to void a check in a closed period – our closed period is password protected – I don’t want to have to record a journal entry and then clear that journal entry on a bank rec in order to simply void a check – why can’t a voided check just be marked as voided in the prior period without effecting prior periods? The effect should only be posted to the current/open period – shouldn’t have to add 2 transactions to take care of a single check that needs to be voided – if there is no other way – someone needs to fix this , i am using on-line – but version should be irrelevant , Why not create almost a separate type of transaction similar to a credit memo? Create a new “check” with the same number as the check to be voided and click a radio box “void” and date it today – that links it to the original check and stamps the original check “voided” but does not change the prior period balances at all – then clear the oustanding check against the new voided check transaction on the bank rec – just my thoughts. that is a BIG design flaw – needs to be fixed. Way too much room for error and a very poor internal control weakness.

  8. how do you remove a voided check from the check register? When a check register report is processed all voided checks appear. using Quickbooks online

  9. I made some payments yesterday and I accidentally applied yesterday’s date to it instead of last yrs date. How can I fix this.

  10. I have created a paycheck with the wrong amount. DO I void or delete the paycheck and reissue to the employee with the corrected amount. What are the implications of each method.

  12. how to handle a customer that voided the security deposit they gave me?, Before moving forward. I would like to ask you one question. I am using Premeir contractor edition 2019

  13. I tried entering a check back into QuickBooks that got deleted, and now it’s saying there is no transaction history so it’s showing like the check hasn’t really been issued. I was trying to google how to correct that. I’m using QuickBooks Desktop Pro 2021

  14. Maybe you can understand what I need, because QB online customer service did not. First 2 weeks ago or so I requested to have 2 checks corrected to the correct date. From 01/05/2022 to 12/03/2021. This was done. in the process QB also created a liability adjustment. However I had not mad payment on those liabilities yet. Therefore there was still a balance on my payroll liabilities. I proceeded to pay said liabilities along with the new accrued liabilities. But QB enter a paid roll liability adjustment in the books for the amount. and now my payroll liabilities show a negative balance as in an overpayment. How can I fixed this?
