How do I delete or void a check?

If you mistakenly enter a check for an expense or owner draw and need to remove it, there are two ways you can do so.

  1. Void a check
  2. Delete a check

1. Void a check

Voiding a check will zero out the amount of the check, but still indicate that a transaction occurred. This is the best way to record stale dated checks or checks that have a stop payment on them.

To void a check:

  1. Navigate to Accounting > Banking.
  2. Click the name of the bank account whose check you want to edit.
  3. In the ledger of the bank account you selected, locate the transaction corresponding to the check you want to edit.
  4. Click the date of the check.
  5. Click Void at the top of the window.
  6. A confirmation pop-up appears, prompting you to confirm. Click OK to void the check. Buildium will change the value of the check to $0.

2. Delete a check

Deleting a check will remove all of the check information from the system. Deletion of financial transactions like checks are tracked on the audit log.

To delete a check:

  1. Navigate to Accounting > Banking.
  2. Click the name of the bank account whose check you want to delete.
  3. Click the date of the check.
  4. Click  at the top of the window.
  5. A confirmation pop-up appears, prompting you to confirm the deletion. Click OK to delete the check information.
