Do’s and Don’ts on Checks

Why do we make handling checks so hard? These simple do’s and don’ts will keep your financial institution from losing money and creating chaos in the back office. Checks are contracts and should be handled like any other legal document. There are reasons why we do not put business checks into personal accounts and why we do not give less cash on business accounts. Learn the safe way to handle checks and be sure that you and your financial institution can be protected from loss on the negotiable instruments.
