Void A Check

There are times when it is necessary to void a check or transaction yet, keep a record on a ledger within the system. 

Important Note: If you need to keep a more detailed paper trail, especially if a particular check was included in a bank reconciliation, it is advised to post a ledger adjustment transaction (also known as a journal entry) instead of voiding the check. 

Instructions on posting a journal entry can be found here: Ledger Adjustment Transactions / Journal Entry
