The Check Stop Payment page allows you to place a stop payment on a check after it has been given to a vendor. Placing a stop payment will prevent a vendor from cashing a check that you do not want cashed. This can only be done provided that the check has NOT been cashed. Please note that there is a $25.00 fee for each check that has a stop payment placed on it.
It is also worth noting that if you still have a check in your possession and would like to void it, you can use the Cancel Check feature to accomplish this. If you only cancel a check that you have already given to a vendor, it will still be possible for that vendor to cash that check.
In order to navigate to the Check Stop Payment page, you can follow these steps:
- Click on the Cash Out tab.
- Click on the Checks option; this will take you to the All Checks page.
- Now you can click on the Check Stop Payment Related Link from the top of this page.
Once you have landed on this page, you will see a list of all checks that you can place a stop payment on. You can sort any of the columns by ascending or descending or by clicking on the header you are looking to sort by. After you have found the check you are placing a stop payment on, you will select it by clicking the selection box on the left-hand end its row. You can also use the Select All option to select/deselect all of the checks on this list. Now that the check has been selected, you merely need to click the [Submit] button at the bottom of the page to complete the process.
