How to write checks

Creating checks in QuickBooks Online lets you track expenses, and helps organize your checking account and bank statement reconciliation.

How to write a check

  1. Select + New.
  2. Under Vendors , select Check.
  3. Choose the Payee from the drop-down list.
  4. Specify the Bank Account where the money will be withdrawn.
  5. Complete the check fields. (Note: The Memo field is optional. Text you enter in the Memo field appears in the register, on printed checks, and on reports that include this check).
  6. Select the Print or Preview option if you want to print the check.
  7. Select Save and close or Save and new.

Tip: If you have a lot of checks to write, it is easier to either enter them from the Register, or download transactions directly from the bank.

You can get secure checks that prevent counterfeiting and tampering at Intuit Market.
