Difference Between Void and Delete Checks in QuickBooks

Sometimes it happens that you have recorded a payment in QuickBooks but you have to reverse the transaction because of some reason. For Example, The check was not received by the vendor or the name entered in the check did not match the vendor’s details or similar reasons. You can do this in two methods: a) Void the transaction or b) Delete the check.

However, there is a difference between voiding the transaction and deleting a check and they cannot be used interchangeably. Under voiding the transaction, the QuickBooks changes the amount of transaction to zero but keeps a record of the transaction made while under deleting the checks the QuickBooks will remove the details of the transaction altogether. It will even change the status of the Bill paid back to unpaid. Also by deleting the Bill, the Transaction journal detail report will not have any trail of the transaction or bill associated with it. So to make a check void or to delete the check altogether should be a judicious decision. In this article, we will guide you how a check can be made void or deleted altogether in QuickBooks.
