How to Record Bounced Check in Quickbooks

We received a Question from

"ExpertWandaB" in our Forum Posting

We have a customer whose check bounced for “insufficient funds”
This was discovered after receiving a bank statement and reconciling our records.
How do you properly record this problem so that it can be reconciled a bank statement?
Also, how do you indicate a credit for payment to the customer when the bank finally clears a bounced check?
Thanks in advance.


Create a chart of accounts called "Bounced Checks" as an Accounts Receivable.

Make journal entries from bank account to this new account to record money going out and coming back in.
