Banking in France

Banking in France Finally, when receiving a cheque, before paying it in make sure that the beneficiary has signed the reverse of the cheque and preferably written their account number on the reverse. This will avoid any delays upon crediting the cheque to your account. If you would like more information or wish to apply for a CA Britline account, please visit How to Write a Cheque in France The layout of a French bank cheque is slightly different to a UK cheque. Each cheque requires the following to be legally valid: - - The amount of the cheque (written in words) - The payee – individual or company – to whom you are making the payment - The amount of the cheque (written in numbers) - The location where the cheque is written, for example. the village/town where you live if written at home or the town where the shop/business is located. - The date - Your signature And of course this all has to be written in French. It’s also important to know - if there is a difference between the numbers and the words written on the cheque, the bank will take the written numbers as final.
