How can I increase the limit of characters in check payee name?

Good morning, @Michael Krones

 

I hope you're doing well. 

 

As of right now, this is currently not available in QuickBooks Desktop. I understand how this feature could benefit you and your business. I will send feedback on your behalf so our developers will be aware of how we can improve your QuickBooks Desktop experience. 

 

In the meantime, you can check out: Character limitations for fields for QuickBooks for more details about character limitations. 

 

Please let me know if I can be of more assistance to you. I'll always be around to help you out. Take care and have a good one!

How can I increase the limit of characters in check payee name?

HI Tori, 

 

Is there any development in the future wherein the "user" can have the option to increase the limit of payee characters, I understand that currently , its only limited to about 41 characters but for like in my case where there are payees that at time exceeds that limit 

 

Any luck updates from the developers?

 

Thanks

I am having exactly the same problem.  frequently we have to truncate the payee name to such a point that we worry about banks not accepting the checks for deposit because the payee's account is titled differently. this has created a problem more than once and I have had to print a blank check to hand write the payee line.  Extremely unprofessional.
