How to handle ruined checks

Sometimes checks can get ruined or damaged outside of QuickBooks. For example, you might accidentally print over a page of checks or otherwise tear or damage the checks.

To account for ruined or unusable checks, you can do one of two things:

  • Skip over the missing check numbers by resetting the check counter when you print your next batch of checks.

  • Enter a check with a $0.00 amount and void the check.

    Use this option if you must account for all check numbers. In order to save the $0.00 amount check, you must enter a payee name and assign an account in the Expenses section of the check.
