Can a voided transaction be un-voided?

A check was printed to a vendor, it got cleared and reconciled, but then voided. It's creating problems with my beginning balance. What is the best way to fix?

While you cannot un-void a transaction you can re-create it


Can a voided transaction be un-voided?

Hi there, @horsenroundnnv,


John-pero is correct. We're unable to revert a voided entry, but you may recreate it using the history in your QBO account.


To find voided transactions, use the Audit Log. This report will show you the history or detail of a modified or deleted entry. Here's to use it:


  1. Click the Gear icon, then select Audit Log under Tools.
  2. Use the Filter button then choose Show only these events.
  3. Mark the Transactions box to show all the actions made to a certain entry.
  4. If you only want to find deleted entries, pick Deleted/Voided Transactions from the Show drop-down.
  5. Hit Apply.
  6. From there, locate the deleted transaction and press View.
  7. Click on Show all to get the details needed to recreate the entry.


If there are deleted items, recreate them if necessary by clicking on the + New button on the toolbar. Here's an article to guide you on how to utilize the Audit Log: Use the audit log in QuickBooks Online.

Can a voided transaction be un-voided?

Good morning John-pero. I found your response here in QuickBooks. Could you please assist me? I'm using QuickBooks Desktop Pro 2021, and a check from April 2020 (payment to a vendor) was voided by mistake. Now, I'm having issues with my next reconciliation for April 2024 because my beginning balance is not the correct amount. How could I correct this to ensure that my beginning balance reflects the correct amount I should start with? Could you please help me? Thank you very much.
