Write a check

Hi there, nevalar.

 

Thank you for posting here in the QuickBooks Community.

 

If you have existing bills, I suggest recording the payment through Pay Bill. This process will mark the bills as closed and paid.

 

 Follow the steps below:

 

1. At the top of the page, select Vendors, then Pay bills.
2. On the drop-down arrow under Filter By, select the Vendor.
3. Put a check-mark in the box for the bills you want to pay
4. Set any discount or credit that you want to apply to the bills.
5. Select the method and the payment date.
6. Click the Pay Selected Bills button.
7. You'll be routed into the Payment Summary. select done if you are finished paying bills.


Recording the payment through Write Checks won't link the payment to the bills. Thus the transactions will remain unpaid. You can check out this article for steps to link the checks with bills: Bill shows as unpaid after writing a check.

 

Please know that you're always welcome to post if you have any other concerns. Wishing you and your business continued success.

Select "Write Checks" from the dashboard the same way you would if you were cutting the check from QuickBooks. You will un-check the "Print Later" box, and enter the check number for the manual check along with the rest of the information.
