Void or delete a bill or bill payment cheque in QuickBooks Desktop

by Intuit Updated 4 weeks ago

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.

Before you decide to delete or void a bill/bill payment cheque, consider this:

  • Void a Bill/Bill Payment cheque - the amount changes to zero but keeps a record of the transaction in QuickBooks.
  • Delete a Bill/Bill Payment cheque -
    • the transaction is removed entirely from QuickBooks. It also causes the bill(s) paid to return to unpaid status.
    • 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.
