I overpaid a contract worker with a check. can I correct by adjusting future payments

I pay a contract worker by the piece, for documents completed.  in his May billing summary to me, he made a math error and overcharged me by one "piece".  The check I wrote for May is not matching invoices posted in May. (one piece overpaid)  Can I make a correction by backdating his next "piece" submitted in July to May, then telling him not to include it in his July billing summary?

Yes, you can definitely do it, chulce.

 

We can enter a memo on the check to indicate that it's an adjustment for the overpayment. Also, please make sure to inform your vendor about this adjustment.

 

Here's how to enter a memo:

 

  1. Click the + New button.
  2. Select Check.
  3. Choose the appropriate vendor.
  4. Enter the necessary information.
  5. Enter a brief description of the transaction in the Memo field.
  6. Click Save and close when you're done.

In case you'll need to track all the money you've paid to a vendor for a particular date range, we can customize the Transaction List by Date report.

 

If there's anything else that I can help you with, please don't hesitate to visit the Community again. Have a pleasant day ahead.
