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!!! :(

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.
