There are times where you need to void a trust transaction such as a bounced trust check. In Cosmolex, you want to make sure you have a record of this voided transaction.



To Void a Trust Transaction:


  • On the Matter Landing page, select the requested matter > click Details or double click on the matter.

  • In matter details, select the transactions tab.

  • Select the banking tab, and under the transactions section, click Action > Void Transaction



In the Void Transaction Window:



  • Choose the void date

  • Memo - shows the original date of when the transaction was entered, the amount, and the ref# for the check.

  • Memo 2 - Put in a memo of why the transaction is being voided. (ex. Bounced check)


When ready, click Save.


  • You will then see under the transaction tab, where it says type, it will say void check, and void adjustment in which means the funds went back in the trust account.

NOTE: If you receive the message below when voiding a trust transaction, this means this is linked to an invoice payment and you would need to delete the deposit transaction. Once this is deleted, the trust transaction will automatically be deleted and the funds will go back into the trust account.

NOTE: Voided trust transactions will not show in reconciliation statement but will show on the trust ledger transaction report.
