Voiding a Check in QuickBooks

When you void a check in QuickBooks, the amount of the original transaction is changed to zero as of the date of the check.

To void a check from the current fiscal period:

  1. Display the check you want to void. (Locate the check by looking in the Vendor Center)
  2. From the Edit menu, click Void Check
  3. Enter the explanation in the check Memo field
  4. Click Save & Close to record the transaction

QuickBooks changes the check amount to zero (You will see 0.00 in the clearing account) and adds the word "Void" to the memo. syncs a journal entry to the clearing account for the credit to balance out the Funds Transfer entry.
