How do I delete a contractor payment that was made by check and not direct deposit?

I meant to pay with direct deposit, but clicked the arrow next to "Pay with direct deposit" only to discover that was for checks and not direct deposit. The placement of the arrow is confusing. Better to have a separate button for pay with check.

How do I delete a contractor payment that was made by check and not direct deposit?

Yes, there is a way to delete the payment, @fredburks.

 

You'll want to go to the Magnifying glass icon and select the check you've created from the RECENT TRANSACTIONS section. 

 

If you can't find it, type in the name of the contractor in the search field to see all the recent transactions made for that contractor. 2.PNG

 

You can also click the Advanced Search link to easily find the transaction you're looking for. Once you've found the check, select it to view the details. Click More, then select Delete2.PNG

 

When everything is in place, you can now confidently pay your contractor through direct deposit. In addition to this, you'll want to utilize this link for guidance in filing your 1099 efficiently: Create and file 1099s using QuickBooks Online.

 

Let me know in your reply if you need further help with paying your contractors. I'm just a post away from you. Keep safe!

Thanks for posting in the Community, @fredburks 

 

In QuickBooks Online (QBO), you can void the failed contractor direct deposit (DD) from the bank register instead of deleting it. This can be done by going to the Expenses menu.

 

Here's how to do it:

 

  1. In QBO, go to the Expenses menu at the left pane to get to the Expenses page.
  2. Locate the DD transaction to be voided.
  3. Click the View/Edit drop-down arrow under the Action column.
  4. Choose Void, then hit Yes to confirm.

 

Once done, it'll show as voided, and the amount will change to $0.00. Also, QBO has an option that allows you to find or update your DD funding time. Check out this article for more information: View or change your direct deposit funding time.

Voiding would be my second choice. Is there any way to delete a payment that was never made? Thanks so much for your help.

Thanks for that very detailed and informative message. When I followed your directions for both ways to delete the contractor payment, I received the message "Quickbooks Online Needed." I had thought our nonprofit had Quickbooks Online, but then I realized we only have Quickbooks Payroll. Bummer. Oh well, I can go with voiding the payment for now. I'd rather have the finances in QB on my computer than online. Take good care.
