Unpresented Cheques

What are an Unpresented Cheques?

Unpresented cheques are cheques which have not yet cleared through the banking system. It is a term used in the preparation of a bank reconciliation statement.

For example, if a business writes a cheque, it will post it to its cash book that day and then send it on to its supplier. The supplier will receive the cheque days later, and send it on to its bank. The cheque then passes through the banking system and eventually, a few more days later, it is processed by the bank of the business and posted to its account (bank statement).

The period of days between the business posting the cheque and the bank posting the cheque results in items in the cash book not on the bank statement. These cheques are normally referred to as unpresented cheques
