How do you print joint checks to your vendors?

Printing joint checks to vendors

Welcome to the Community, Westpac.

Allow me to provide you some information about printing joint checks for vendors via QuickBooks Desktop.


Right now, printing joint checks for vendors isn't currently available in QuickBooks Desktop. You'll need to print the check as usual then manually write down the vendors name.


You may find this article helpful: Print checks one at a time or in a batch.


Don't hesitate to drop a reply below if you need additional assistance with printing checks. Have a nice day!

Printing joint checks to vendors

Is printing joint checks with QBO available?


Printing joint checks to vendors

Hi @kathRSC,


Welcome to the Community. I'm here to provide some clarification about QuickBooks Online's capability.


Currently, an option or ability to print joint checks is unavailable in the Online version. As a workaround, I recommend leaving the Payee field blank when creating a check in QuickBooks.


This way, you can enter the joint payee information by hand once printed. In case you need the steps, here's how:


  1. Log into your QuickBooks account.
  2. Click the + New option in the upper-left corner.
  3. Select Check under Vendors.
  4. Leave the Payee field blank. 
  5. Enter the category or item details.
  6. Hit Save and close.


For additional reference, you can use the following article to learn how to resolve problems when printing checks on a blank check stock: Print checks on blank check stock.


Please know that I'm just a post away if you need more assistance with printing transactions in QBO. Take care.

Not a solid accounting, or GAAP, workaround, the checks/invoice needs to be associated with the correct vendor.  In the construction industry, a joint check is made to ensure your subcontractor's lower tier sub or supplier is paid and the accounting of this is most important.  However, I will do it in separate partial payments, changing the "print on check as field each time".  Cannot wait to be off QB.  Thank you for your time however!  Much appreciated.
