If you receive a customer payment by cheque that is dishonoured by your bank (also called a bounced cheque), you can reverse the payment. After you reverse it, the invoice will show as outstanding. If it's unlikely that you'll receive a payment, you'll also need to account for a bad debt.

Before you reverse a transaction, you need to set your security preferences to allow transactions to be reversed (Setup menu > Preferences > Security tab > Transactions CAN'T be Changed; They Must be Reversed).

If the payment was included in a bank deposit, you'll also need to update the deposit so you can reconcile it later.
