How to write a check? And why is it important?


I’m going to tell you how to write a check and why its important to write one. First to write a check make sure you or that person  has money in their bank account so the check doesn’t bounce, because if the check bounces you’ll have a fee and you’ll have to owe money back.

Next you write the printed amount in the upper right corner in the little box, also make sure you write the amount you are giving them close and big so no one can add more money to the check. Also write the amount in pen so no one can erase and change the amount of money you are giving away.

After you wrote the printed number of how much you are giving you have to have the written amount on the line to the left in words. Then you have to have the payee, that is who or where the check is going too. Also you will have to fill out the memo line on the check is for like for example a birthday gift, groceries, bills, and etc. That just helps to keep track of where you spent it.

After all you have written and printed those steps, the next steps is writing you signature, writing the date, coping down the check number, and writing down in your bookkeeping. These are all important because writing your name will let the bank its really your signature. Then writing the date and check number in your bookkeeping to keep track of what day you wrote that check and where that check is going. Also bookkeeping will keep track of where each check number went.
