Voiding Checks

You can void checks that have been recorded in your QuickBooks company file. There are two methods of voiding, depending on when the check was issued. If the check was issued in the current year, you can void the check in the check register. If the check was written in a prior year, you should be careful not to change amounts that appeared on your financial statements. The steps shown here will prevent that from happening.

Void a Check in the Current Year

Press Ctrl+A to open the Chart of Accounts.

Double-click the name of your checking account to open the register.

Click the Go To button.

Choose whether to search by Payee, check number, or some other criteria.

Enter the name (if you're searching by payee), check number, or other information to help you find the check you want to void.

Click Prev or Next to search backward or forward in the register. Continue clicking Prev or Next until you find the check you're looking for.

When the entry for the check appears, press Esc to remove the Go To window.

Right-click the register entry.

Click Void Check on the pop-up menu. The check amount switches to zero and VOID appears in the memo area.

Click the Record button.
