Our Check Reconciliation Service can help reduce the amount of time you spend on manual account administration by automatically recording transactions and generating reports detailing account activity and current balances.
You’ll receive a fully reconciled statement each period that compares check issue information against items that have cleared an account. The report, delivered electronically or by mail, lists all paid checks, outstanding checks, voided items and stop payments.
We also provide paid check reports for the reconciliation period that include check number, dollar amount and settlement date, enabling clients to compare information against their own records.
