What happens when I void a contractor check?
Voiding a check changes your paycheck records and updates the paycheck dollar amount to zero. You'll still need to make adjustments to balance your books. This does not stop a direct deposit from processing and does not return funds to you if the processing deadline has passed.
If the deadline to cancel the payments passed, your workers will receive the money in their bank accounts on the pay date. You can void the payments and collect the money back from your contractor directly on on future checks. If this is not possible, you may qualify to request a direct deposit reversal.
NOTE: If you are unable to complete voiding your direct deposit, you may have passed your processing deadline, contact us for support.
