CPA Tip: Forgetting to Whom You Wrote a Check

Have you ever written a check and then forgotten whom you wrote the check to or how much it was for? Here’s how to handle the situation in QuickBooks.

  • Enter the check directly in the register (choose Lists, Chart of Accounts, and then double-click on the cash account from which you wrote the check). Alternatively, press Ctrl+W to open the Write Checks form.

  • Enter the check with a payee such as Unknown or To Be Determined, and use an account such as Miscellaneous to categorize the expenditure.

  • Enter an amount that seems reasonable, knowing that you can change the amount later.

  • When the cancelled check comes back from the bank, you can go back to the register entry and change any incorrect information such as the category or the amount.
