Nix on investments but everything else is fair game!
Post dating checks has not been a practice honored by major banks for quite a number of years. Regulatory changes require that any check issued for payment must be considered as payment at the time of issuance. Businesses are not required to hold these checks, even should their representatives state they will be held and banks are required to honor items at the time they are presented.
I have heard some associated tell customers it is illegal to issue post-dated checks. While this is technically incorrect, the practice of post dating checks is definitely not honored anymore. I'm afraid those days have been gone for quite some time.
I hope this has helped in some way.2 comments
