Employees want paper checks, but can't' print them right now.

Hello,

I'm looking to hire two employees. Both of these employees would prefer paper checks for the time being. However, I do not have the resources to print checks at this time, but do have basic bank checks from our bank. When using Quickbooks to run payroll, will I be forced to print checks, or can I just assign the payroll net pay to Liabilities, so that the written bank check will draw out later to extinguish the Liability?

 

Thank you!

Re: Employees want paper checks, but can't' print them right now.

For payroll to properly complete you need to create the checks. Printing or not printing has nothing to do with the calculations and is of no concern.

 

You can approach this this a couple ways. One, you print to pdf with a pdf printer (saving the file) and use the starting number of checks you do have available to hand print.  The other is you save checks as "to Print" and then open each check later and enter the corresponding check number to match what you handed out. Do not muddy it up by attempting to post something where it does not belong
