Can I Print Checks in QuickBooks?
Question: Can I print checks in QuickBooks? If so, do you have any tips for buying the checks?
Answer: Yes, you can print checks in QuickBooks. When doing so, the transaction is recorded directly into your general ledger (into the account you designate). Also, when writing a check to pay a supplier purchase order the data will connect directly to the items purchased.
When you purchase checks, be sure to order checks formatted specifically for “Intuit/QuickBooks checks.” You need not buy from Intuit directly, but be sure the format is correct. And if you choose voucher checks, be sure the check is located at the top of the page. Only when the check is located here will QuickBooks print correctly.
