void prior year payroll check

An ex-employee with uncashed final paycheck from 2019 showed up and created a scene demanding his final wages in cash.  To avoid further escalation, I paid him cash equal to the net amount of the uncashed check.  How can I get rid of the uncashed paycheck in QB?

void prior year payroll check

enter a deposit in the checking account in the total amount, use a clearing expense account as the source account for the deposit


then enter the cash payment from the cash account and use that same clearing expense account as the expense for the check.


The deposit and the check will cancel in the clearing expense account, and when you reconcile check off the deposit against the old check
