Writing and recording cheques for your expenses keeps your current account organised in QuickBooks. If you make a purchase with a hand-written cheque or you want to print a new cheque, you need to enter a cheque in QuickBooks. This ensures your accounts are up-to-date, and all of your business transactions are accounted for. Here's how to record and print a cheque.

How to record or create a cheque

Follow these steps to record a hand-written cheque in QuickBooks. You can also follow these steps to create and print a brand new cheque:

  1. Select + New.
  2. Select Cheque.
  3. Choose the Payee from the dropdown ▼.
  4. From the Bank account dropdown ▼, select the account the cheque withdraws money from.
  5. Complete the cheque fields you need.
  6. Select the Print option.
  7. Select Save and close to close the cheque window. Or Save and new if you need to create another cheque. Note: If you choose a save option, this adds the cheque to your bank register.

How to print your cheque

If you're just recording a hand-written cheque, once you save your cheque, you're all done. Everything is in QuickBooks.

If you selected the Print option, your cheque is ready to print.

Note: You can use your own checks to print, but they need to be formatted for QuickBooks.

Tip: If you have a lot of cheques to write, it is easier to either enter them from the Account history or download transactions directly from the bank.
