Stop payments are a service provided to the customer in the event the customer does not want a check he or she has written to be paid. It is important to place the stop payment information on the bank account as quickly as possible to prevent losses.
Be sure to inform the customer that his or account will be charged $15.00 for this service. The following information must be obtained from the bank customer and placed on BNK103-2 STOP PAYMENT form:
Customer’s name, address, and a telephone number where the customer can be reached during banking hours.

This information needs to be placed on the account and given to the bookkeepers. The customer will need to sign the stop payment form within ten business days.
