Blank Check Stock Printing in AccountingSuite™

Blank Check Stock Printing (extension)

Introduction

This extension allows Bookkeepers and Accountants to print checks from ACS to blank check stock.

The Blank check stock extension provides more security and the ability to save money on pre-printed checks.  It also simplifies the process by allowing the use of just one kind of check stock for all bank accounts when paying bills and/or running payroll for their clients.


Installation / Setup

Please see this article  for installation instructions.
Please Note:  In order to print checks from blank check stock, you must have the MICR font and magnetic ink for your printer.   The Magnetic Ink Character Recognition font prints the account number and the routing transit number (RTN) on the blank check stock and magnetic ink must be used so that the computers processing the checks can read them properly.

Setup

In order to correctly print the check, the account number and routing transit number (RTN) must be entered on the Bank details card.   To complete this task,
  1.  Navigate to the  Bank details card:  Accounting / Chart of Accounts.
  2. Double click the account to open.
  3. Add the Bank Account # and the Routing # in the fields provided.   
  4. Click Save and Close.
Note:   The Chart of Accounts account type must be Bank in order to see the Bank Account # and Routing # fields.
An RTN is the code that identifies a financial institution on a check or transfer. RTNs are used in the electronic processing of checks. A bank RTN identifies the bank a check is drawn on.
