I invoiced a client. She paid with a check and I marked the invoice paid. The check bouced. How do I reissue invoice now that it is marked paid?

Thanks for posting to the Community, @marymarsh000.

 

Let's record all these details on a bounced check transaction by following these steps.

 

First, you're going to create an item for bounced checks. Please know, if you'd created this item before, proceed to step 1.

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon and then select Products and Services.
  2. Click New, then choose Service.
  3. Name the item Bounced Check Fees.
  4. Select an account you use to track bounced check fees from the Income account drop-down list.
  5. Select Save and close.

Step 1: Record the bounced check in a journal entry

The first step is to record the bounced check in a journal entry:

  1. Select + New.
  2. Under Other, select Journal Entry.
  3. Enter the date the check bounced in the Journal date field.
  4. On the first line, select Accounts Receivable from the Account menu.
  5. In the Debits column, enter the amount of the bounced check.
  6. Select the customer from the menu in the Name column.
  7. On the second line, select the bank account from the Account menu. The amount should appear automatically in the Credits field.
  8. Enter a notation explaining the reason for the journal entry in the Memo field.
  9. Select Save.

You have recorded the bounced check. You can now clear the invoice that was paid with the bounced check and link the bounced check to the journal entry you just created.

 

Follow steps 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 to completely record the details of the transaction through this link: How to enter a bounced check using a journal entry.

 

Also, I'll add this article as your reference using an invoice, a check, or a journal entry: How to record a bounced check entered using Accounts Receivable.
