This program will look at who has the right to endorse the back of the check and where is proper endorsement placement. We will also look at what happens if a check is not endorsed properly, when it may be best not to accept the check at all due to missing or problem endorsements, why we do not put business checks into personal accounts, and why we do not give less cash on business accounts. Many tricky issues will be discussed, such as deceased customers, business accounts, endorsements for minors, income tax check endorsements, trustee endorsements, and endorsements by powers of attorney. Learn the safe way to handle checks and be sure that you and your financial institution are protected from loss on the negotiable instruments. You will not want to miss this webinar! The information provided will produce confidence and a thorough understanding of the legal issues of endorsements.
