Select Accounts Payable Main menu > Manual Check and Payment Entry.


Use Manual Check and Payment Entry to enter information from handwritten checks, wire transfers, invoices, and general ledger distribution information. You can write a check or process a wire transfer for a payables transaction (for example, COD shipment or petty cash) using this task. You can also enter check information to quick print a manual check and record the reversal of an electronic payment.

If the Fixed Assets module is integrated with Accounts Payable and you have the appropriate security set up, you can select the asset account and template using General Ledger Distribution to create assets in Sage Fixed Assets based on the manual check entry invoice lines.

Reversing an electronic payment will not write a record to the ACH file. If you reverse an electronic payment, you must contact the bank directly to stop or reverse the vendor payment.

NoteSage Fixed Assets refers to the fixed assets product used with Sage 100.
