All About Checks placement of endorsement

-The time between receipts of the deposit by the bank and its
availability to the depositor is called the float.

-Endorsements must be made in the 1 1/2 inch space on the left side
of the check. If the endorsement is placed outside of the 1 1/2 inch
space the check may be returned and you could be held reliable for
the fees.

Tips for good check writing

1. Write checks only on the forms provided by your bank.

2. Write checks in only ink.

3. Only write checks if you have money in your account to cover them. If you don't you will overdraw: writing a check for more money than is in one's account.

4. Use the current date. If you don't do this you will have a post dated check.

5. Avoid making checks payable to cash or bearer.

6. Always fill in amount.

7. Void checks on which you make errors on.

8. Record every amount from your checking account, whether the payment is by check or EFT. Vocabulary
