# How do you write a 40-dollar check?

(Amount in Numeric Form): Enter 40.00 in the box immediately below the \$ sign on the same line. Please add the decimal component 00. DOLLARS (Price in Words): On the next field, write 40 and 00/100 as far to the left of that line as feasible. All checks should be written in English and include the account number for which it is written.

This example check is being written to cover the cost of food for four people at an average restaurant meal. If you were to cash this check, your bank would give you \$40 from the money in your account. The rest of the check would be returned to the company that issued it.

Checks can also be written for less than \$40. For example, if the meal cost only \$35, you could write a check for that amount. But because checks are drawn on funds in a customer's account, they cannot be written for an amount less than what is in the account. In this case, the check would not be cashed and the company that issued it would be asked to put more money into your account to make up the difference.

Companies use several methods to collect money when you pay by check. Most common is called "cash collection." If this method is used, the company will wait until your check clears the bank before sending them another one for the remaining balance.

The first step is to obtain a checking account number from your bank. You will need this when you begin writing checks. Most banks now ask you to enter a check number when you open an account, so please ask your banker for this information.

Next, find out if your bank charges a fee for using a debit card instead of cash or check to make purchases. Some do and some don't. If your bank does charge a fee, then they will also charge a transaction fee for each check written. These fees can add up quickly and may not be worth it for just a few checks.

At last, find out if your bank will accept online payments. Many will now accept online payments for routine transactions such as rent and utilities. Find out what methods of payment are accepted through an online form or phone call and ensure that your bank offers these services before completing an online purchase.
