Note: This article uses the term "check," please be advised that it is applicable to all locations.

A bill will show as unpaid if you use Write Checks when paying the outstanding debt. The PAID stamp will not appear on the bill if the payment was not recorded through Pay Bills.

Use Write Checks:
  • When you settle bills as they arrive.
  • If you do not need reports showing how much you owe.
Use Pay Bills
  • If you recorded your payables through Enter Bills.
  • When you prefer to pay bills at once, for example, on the same day each month.
  • If you want to see reports showing how much you owe.
