Writing Checks

  1. Click "New Transaction" and select "Check."
  2. Enter the Memo of the check. This is optional but is highly recommended for reference purposes.
  3. Choose the date of the check. This should be the date that you print the check.
  4. Select your payee. If this is a new payee, type their name and the payee will be created. You can add contact details later.
