Cashier’s Check

What is a Cashier’s Check?

In business it is often the case that a supplier will demand payment before supplying goods. One method of dealing with this is for the business to ask it’s bank for a cashier’s check.

The bank will charge the customers account with the amount and then provide the cashier’s check drawn on the bank’s own funds and signed by a cashier.

As the bank has assumed responsibility for the amount, the cashier’s check is in effect guaranteed payment.

  • Cashier’s cheque
