What is the accounting treatment of stale cheque?
What is the account for a stopped or expired cheque? A cheque that isn’t presented to the bank is simply a payment recorded in the company’s file. Your cheque account balance won’t be as high as it should be until an adjustment is made. The cheque needs to be reversed to make up for the difference.
How do you record a stale cheque?
