Misprinted Check

Postby kencaine » Wed Sep 09, 2009 4:58 pm

One of our units generated a misprinted check and am was wondering what steps I need to take to get it resolved. Check #123 was printed incorrectly and voided on paper but it did not void the check in MLS. A new check was then printed on check #124 but MLS recorded it as #123. The check was given to the recipient. And the transmission has also taken place to HQ.

Should we void check #124 and leave #123 as is or does it need to be check number reconciled?

Thanks
ken

Since the actual paper check number 123 was voided MLS needs to be corrected to agree with what actually happened. Void check # 123 in MLS (View?Update Expenses) and create a new expense with the same information previously entered for check 123 (this assumes no other checks have been written since the entry for 123 and the actual paper check 124). At the time to print the check use blank stock instead of check stock. Do not destroy the check printed on the blank stock but file it with the rest of the documentation for the expense.
