16329: Quick Payments (DAS)


Drake Accounting®: Is there a way to print a check without using the payroll function or creating an invoice? 


Use Quick Payments (Check Writer in DAS19 and prior) to print vendor checks quickly without having to schedule a payment.  Non-payroll employee checks can also be printed using Quick Payments.  Checks created in Quick Payments must be printed one at a time.

Note: The vendor/employee must be set up in DAS to issue a check from Quick Payments.

To create a check using Quick Payments:

  1. Select the Payables menu, then select Payments and Quick Payments (in DAS19 and prior, select the Payables menu, then select Check Writer).
  2. Select the applicable Payment Method.

  3. Enter an Invoice NumberPO (purchase order), and Description. (optional)                                                                     
  4. In the Payment Type section, select the vendor or employee from the Pay To droplist.
    • Check the Show Employees checkbox to include employees in the Pay To droplist in order to issue non-payroll checks such as per diem, reimbursements, etc.

  5. Enter the Check No., check date, and check amount.                              
  6. In the Accounting Transactions section, enter the applicable transactions for the check.  If you have enabled the option Generate Accounting Transactions and have set up the applicable accounts under Payables > Options, this information will generate automatically. 

  7. Verify the check information is correct, then select Print.

Beginning with DAS20, there is also a Check Register section that will list all previous checks that were created in Quick Payments.

​Note: Checks created in Quick Payments cannot be tied to previously created invoices.
