Many of you never thought about how to write a check properly until they actually need it.
writing a check is an important skill specially for business so in this article we’re going to see a simple way to write a check.
You just need to write :
- the current date on the line in the upper right corner.
- the name of the recipient in the “Pay to” field (the one that you’re paying the check to , it may be a person or a company).
- the numerical amount next to the dollar sign ($) (it may be other signs in other countries but it’s not too diffrent ) .
- and the written form of the same amount on the line beneath (the numerical number into words). Sign the check on the bottom right line and don’t forget adding a “memo” about the check’s purpose on the lower left line. The more often you write checks, the more easy the operation will come.
1. Filling out the date
2. Write the recipient name.
Write the person’s or company’s name you’re sending the check to next to “Pay to the Order of.” If it’s a company and you’re not sure exactly what it’s name, make sure you get that information before start writing the check. You may also just pay the check to “Cash,” but be careful, because that means that anyone can cash it.
If it’s to an individual, include both their first and last names. If they are a ‘Jr.’ or a ‘Sr.’ you should include this as well.
If the check is going to an organization, write out its full name. Do not use acronyms unless explicitly given permission.
3. Write the amount of the check to the right of the dollar sign.
4. write the amount in words.
Make sure you also write the amount of cents if there are cents, or write “even” at the end of the amount so that another person doesn’t add more money to it. If you have written a check for $30.00, write “Thirty dollars and 0/100 cents,” “Thirty dollars even,” or just “Thirty” with a line in the buttom.
