Add a Description
In the description field, you can name and describe the item or service you want.
In the Amount field, type the amount for this cheque. Select or type the applicable sales tax in the Sales Tax field.
If you’ve handwritten this cheque, enter the cheque number. If you’re printing the cheque, leave the cheque number blank.

If you’re going to enter a cheque and want to print several at once, click Print Later.
Click Save and New to enter the next cheque, or Save and Close when you’re all done.
