Did you know that in QuickBooks, you can’t void a transaction and have that void affect the current period by simply voiding it? For example, if the accounting manager voids a check from a prior year or period, the checking account balance is adjusted from the date of the voided check. This creates the following problems:
- The bank reconciliations that have been prepared for the month of the voided check and all subsequent months are now incorrect.
- Previously printed financial statements are different than the financial statements that can be currently printed.
- If the voided check is dated in a year for which income tax returns have already been prepared, then the QuickBooks financial statements will not agree with the financial statements used in the preparation of the income tax returns.
- The Void Date you choose will determine when the void will affect the bank reconciliation, so that prior bank reconciliations are not affected.
- The Posting Date you choose will determine what General Ledger period the voided check affects, so that prior period financial reports are not affected.
