Check


For the economic organization of a company, it is of vital importance to record each of the transactions that are carried out. In this way, administrators are able to assess the capabilities of the company, in addition to designing strategies for saving or making a good investment of money. For this, the accounting documents were created, the bases to store the commercial movements of a company; these should have as many copies as company policies require, in addition to the original document. They can be of two types: external ones, that is, those received by the company, and internal ones, those issued and circulating through it. Among these, we can mention some writings such as the invoice, the quote, the referral and the appropriations.

The check is one of the most used today. In this, a banking institution is ordered to pay a certain person an amount of money established in the document. In other words, the drawer authorizes the drawee to grant an amount of money to a third party, normally called a beneficiary. In order to be fully valid, the checking account from which the money will be withdrawn must have funds to cover the amount to be paid. A limit of at least 180 days has been proposed for collection.

There are different types of checks, such as: the crossed check, which establishes that the bearer must collect with the mediation of a bank entity; for account payment, which requires the money to be deposited directly into the bearer’s account, that is, it cannot be delivered in cash; the certified check, which has confirmation, by a bank, that the drawer has the amount of money necessary to pay the amount; the cancellation, one that, due to having very high amounts of money, cannot be collected in cash; the deferred payment check, in which the banking institution is ordered to deposit, at your order, a certain amount of money on a certain date; In addition, there is the traveler’s check, issued by the credit institution to the same, whose payment would be handled by another branch.
