Checkbook

BDOS has a self-contained checkbook which is fully integrated with the general ledger. Payments can be expensed directly or written to relieve a payable. The BDOS check is formatted to accommodate your existing check stock.

Checkbook – Draft Check

A drop down is used to show the payee and the account that will be charged. If desired, you can attach descriptive notes. The above form identifies a check to the Wall Street Journal and indicates an expense account EXP 604 Newspapers is debited. BDOS allows up to 20 cash accounts. In this example, your cash account CA *140 Cash-Operational will be credited. As said earlier, a competent clerical person can use BDOS.  It takes care of the debiting and crediting automatically. BDOS simply reduces the cash by $250.00 and increases the expense by the same amount.  The general ledger entries for the draft check, once issued, are shown below.
