            1. Hi there. I have a further question about the voided cheque.

              After voided the cheque, if someone wants to review all the transactions, how could he know the original amount which has been changed to $0.00?

              • Hi Rio,

                Try adding a memo to the memo field detailing the original amount and save this memo before you void the check in QuickBooks. It can also be useful to add the reason that you are voiding the check for documentation purposes. Thanks for the comment!
