You can create checks and post the amounts to the ledger accounts without posting the amount to a vendor account first. This is useful when printing checks in the following situations:

  • Cash on delivery (COD) items are delivered and there is no current invoice for the item, or the supplier has not been set up in the system as a vendor. You would create a check when the items are delivered.

  • Payments to one-time vendors.

  • Payments to vendors who do not accept credit cards.

  • Payments from one bank account to another, such as funds transfers or bank loan payments.

  1. Click Cash and bank management > Setup > Cash and bank management parameters.

  2. Select the Allow checks for bank or ledger accounts check box and then close the form.

  3. Click Accounts payable > Journals > Payments > Payment journal.

  4. Press CTRL+N and select a journal name.

  5. Click Lines and create a line.

  6. In the Account type field on the General tab, select Ledger or Bank, and then select the account in the Account field.

  7. If you selected Ledger in the Account type field, enter information in the Recipient name field on the Payment tab.

  8. When you have finished entering information for the line, click Functions > Generate payments to process the check.
