The Cancel Check page is where you can go to void a check from the system that you still have in your possession. You would want to do this if, for example, you printed the wrong check on the wrong check number, or no longer need to give the check to the vendor. If you have already mailed off the check or given it to the vendor and it has not yet been cashed, you will want to use the Stop Payment feature.
Please keep in mind that once a check has been cancelled, it cannot be reused.
To navigate to this page, you can follow this path:
- Click on the Cash Out tab from the Dashboard.
- From here, click on the Checks option; this will take you to the All Checks page.
- At the top of this page, click on the Cancel Check Related Link.
Once you are on this page, you will be presented with a list of any checks that can still be cancelled. Please note that if a check has been cashed, it cannot be cancelled and therefore will not show up on this page. You can sort this page by any of the columns, either in ascending or descending order. Once you have found the check that you would like to cancel, you can click the selection box at the end of its row, and then the [Submit] button at the bottom of the page. You can also use the Select All option to select/deselect all checks on this page.
That's really all there is to it! Once you've clicked [Submit], the check in question will be cancelled, and you can go ahead and dispose of that check. Doing this will ensure that the check isn't accidentally used again, as it cannot be reused.
