How to record a post dated cheque issued to a suuplier

Good day, joan14,


I'm here to help record the post dated cheque you've issued to a supplier.


You'll need to use the Cheque feature and make it payable to the supplier you owe the money. Then, enter the installment date and enter Accounts Payable in the Category field.


Let me walk you through the steps on how to accomplish this:

  1. Click + New.
  2. Under Supplier, select Cheque.
  3. Choose the Payee from the drop-down list.
  4. Specify the Bank Account where the money will be withdrawn.
  5. Complete the cheque fields. Just make sure to use Accounts Payable under Category.
  6. The Memo field is optional. The information you enter in the Memo field appears in the Account history, and on reports that include this cheque.
  7. Hit the Print or Preview option if you want to print the cheque.
  8. Click Save and close or Save and new.

When you receive the bill from the supplier, enter it as usual. The Enter and pay bills page will guide you through the steps.


If you have a lot of cheques to write, it is easier to download transactions directly from the bank.


Let me know if there's anything else you need. I always have your back.


Thank you and stay safe!
