Lost cheque

Hi I wrote a cheque for a supplier and tagged it out of my bank accordingly. Now it turns out they lost the cheque so I have reissued a new one. After I detag the first one and input a second one with a new reference number what do I do next to leave my bank showing the correct figure

Hi @ESL62

I assume that the first cheque wouldn’t show on your bank statement if it was lost (and therefore never deposited) - is that correct?

If that is the case, you can safely delete the untagged cheque entry on your statement. Providing everything matches, it should be all fine.

If you do get charged by the bank for cancelling this cheque, you would just treat this as bank charges (in a similar way you would a monthly fee)

Ok thanks for that. I just wasnt sure of the best way to handle it.
