Step-By-Step Instructions How to Write A Check

  1. Date: Top right. You can put the current date or post-dated date.
  2. Payee name: Write the name of the individual or company you are paying.
  3. Amount in digits: Write in the amount box and preferably to the left side to prevent any forgery by anyone adding a digit there.
  4. Amount in words: It is crucial to write the amount in words to avoid confusion. The amount in words is more important than the amount in the digit. The amount in the word overwrites if you make a mistake in the amount in digits.
  5. Memo: This is optional but good to have it to track what you made that check. We always recommend writing a detailed memo.
  6. Signature: This is important to have a signature on the check. Otherwise, it will not be valid. Use the same signature you have in the Bank File.

Now You Write the Check!

After you write the check, please make sure to keep a good record of it. It will take the confusion away and sometimes even making a duplicate payment. And of course, it is good to have a report later in the year or anytime you need it. We recommend using online check printing and writing software. For a few dollars, it gives you a lot of comfort of having everything on the fingertip.
