Void or delete a bill or bill payment cheque

There are instances when a bill in Quickbooks is recorded as paid, but you need to void the cheque payment due to some issues (for example, a cheque was not received by the supplier). Find out how and when to void or delete a bill or bill payment cheque.

Consider the following before you decide to delete or void a bill/bill payment cheque:
  • Voiding changes the amount of the transaction to zero but keeps a record of the transaction in QuickBooks.
  • Deleting removes the transaction entirely in QuickBooks. It also causes the bill(s) paid to return to unpaid status.
  • Deleting the bill causes the Transaction Journal Detail report to display a bill payment without the corresponding bill. There will also be no bill associated with the payment cheque when you go to its transaction history.
