Void an old paycheck

I'm the bookkeeper for a resort in PA that has a lot of turnover, seasonal employees, etc. and have been cleaning up the books from the office manager who didn't really have a handle on QB. The last lingering issue I've run into is old paychecks, one from 2017, the others from early 2018, that were never cashed. In most cases, either the manager wasn't on duty and the employee got cashed out from the bar or they just disappeared. 

We pay our taxes immediately through the QB payroll service, so the void option is not there and I've got about $1000 tied up in the register that is no longer real.


Is there a way to void these checks that I'm not seeing?

Void an old paycheck

Hello @misgif


Thank you for reaching out to the Community, I'll be happy to help you void an old paycheck.


As long as the money was still paid to the employee, you would want to make sure the check isn't voided. You can create a journal entry to make sure the funds are pulling from the right account though. For the steps, click here.


For Full-Service Payroll, Support would need to launch a corrections case, and possibly an amendment to void the old paychecks if they were not ever paid.

If you have any trouble getting this set up, please let me know. I'll be here to make sure this gets resolved properly for you.
