With the increased acceptance of post-dated cheques (PDC), storage and maintenance issues are much greater than before. Financial departments and institutions find it difficult to keep up with efficient tracking of the cheques received, presentation of cheques for clearing on due dates and storage of PDC.
There is a feature in Book Keeper to maintain the records of all the cheques.
Cheque Manager in Bookkeeper
To manage cheque manager in Book Keeper just follow the below steps:
Go to Tools > Cheque Manager
After clicking on Cheque Manager you will get below mentioned window where you can manage the details of your inward as well as outward cheques.
Suppose, you have generated a Receipt from the Customer voucher under Bank with cheque then that transaction will reflect as New in the Select New Status column. So, you have to manually mention it as cleared or Bounced or Deposited head.
You can also apply the filter to check all the cheques or new, cleared bounced cheques as shown below screenshot:
Note: Bounced cheques won’t affect account balances. To return the amount, you need to create a separate journal entry.
