Remember checks? Although the use of checks has declined significantly due to the rise of digital payments, billions of them are still written each year. How well do you know UCC Articles 3 and 4 (otherwise known as “the law of checks”)? UCC Articles 3 and 4 provide the invaluable framework and rules for cashing and depositing checks. If your staff isn’t familiar with these rules, there is an increased chance of losses due to improperly negotiated or fraudulent checks. Join us for this webinar to gain the information needed to properly process check-related transactions.
