How do i reissue a lost payroll check?

Hey there, time. Thanks for reaching out to the Community about this.

With QuickBooks Online Payroll, paychecks can easily be reissued if they were lost. When doing this, you'll want to notify your bank of what's happened and have them process a Stop Payment order. In the event it's already cleared, you can try to recover funds from whichever financial institution cashed it.

I'll guide you through how to generate a replacement check for your employee:

  • Edit the original record

1. Go to the original paycheck.
2. Review and take note of the information on it.
3. Change its number to the next one available. For example, if it was 100, update it to 101.
4. Select Save and close.

  • Issue a new check

1. Use your ADD NEW (+) icon and choose Check.
2. For the Payee ▼ drop-down, pick the worker's name.
3. Specify which Bank Account is used for payroll.
4. Complete the rest of your available fields. If the date of your original check was issued over 90 days ago, enter today's date.
5. Select Print check.
6. Hit Save and close.

Now the employee's check will be reissued. Next, you'll need to void it so your register is balanced.
