Can you add a feature to void a check (bill expense) in the current period instead of it voiding in a prior closed period?

Can you add a feature to void a check (bill expense) in the current period instead of it voiding in a prior closed period?

Glad to see you in the Online Community, maryjodollar.


To make sure we’re on the same page, are you referring to voiding a check in the prior closed period? If yes, you’re correct, there isn’t an automatic feature available in QBO.


When your books are closed, any data becomes 'locked' and can't be changed. If there’s a mistake,  you’ll still be able to correct the information with guidance from an account.


To void an expense in the current period, the steps are simple and easy. Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Expense menu on the left panel and choose Expenses.
  2. This will open the Expense Transactions page.
  3. From the list, select the check you’re working on and click the View/Edit drop-down to choose Void.

  4. Click Yes once you receive the Are you sure you want to void this transaction pop-up.

Let me also share this guide about removing transactions. It contains detailed steps on how to perform the process for each transaction type: Void or delete entries in QuickBooks Online.

 

However, if you encounter any hurdles, I appreciate adding more details so I can provide the steps to move forward.


Looking forward to your reply. Thanks in advance and have a great rest of the day.

This solution will not void it as of the current date and will affect prior period reporting?
