Sina Bank current account is a form of deposit account that allows payment by way of cheques.
A cheque is a printed form on which customer writes an amount of money and specify who it is to be paid to. Sina Bank then pays the money to that person from the customer's account. Cheque is an important commercial document that individuals, companies, governments and many others use to transact their business. By definition, cheque can be termed as a negotiable document used to transfer money either in physical form or to affect inter-account transfer.
1. Date of the cheque. To be able to receive payment, the date must be the current date.
2. The payment amount written in words. The same value will be written in the box beside it. Ensure that the amount in words and figures are written the same, otherwise, the bank will return the cheque.
3. Payee is the person to whom the cheque is to be issued. Ensure that the name of the person is correctly spelt and written close to the words "pay to". Draw a line on the space after the payee's name to avoid misuse.
4. Drawer's name and current account number
5. Drawer's signature same as his bank's signature
