Correcting my books after a mistake I made

Hi,

I inadvertently mailed the wrong bill payment to the wrong vendor. Example: Received a bill from both AT&T and PG&E at the same time. I made a check out to PG&E but mailed it to AT&T by mistake and they CASHED it!! It was not for the correct amount of our bill for AT&T. In the meantime I paid PG&E online for the correct amount. So how do I fix my mistake on my books? Do I just change the amount of the AT&T bill to the amount of the check they cashed and record as paid? And the check to PG&E which should have been to AT&T, how do I fix that? Boy I made a mess!!! Smiley Sad

Hello Zippygal,

 

Your idea of editing the transaction can be an option, too. Though, you can delete and recreate it.

QuickBooks must follow the actual amount processed.

 

To modify:

  1. Click Vendors, then Vendor Center.
  2. Select the vendor name, then click the Transactions tab.
  3. Locate the transaction in question, double-click to edit.
  4. Click Save & Close.

You can always leave a comment below if you need help with anything else. Thanks for posting.
