Accounts Payable Topic: Check Stop Payment

Description 

A stop payment may only be placed on a check if the check is lost and is unable to be located.

Generally, a stop payment on a General Fund check will not be placed until at least 10 business days have expired from the check’s date of issue.

The payee must not attempt to cash the original check if is received after requesting a stop payment be placed on it.


Procedure

To place a stop payment on a General Fund check:

Call the Accounts Payable vendor team(x51157) for vendor payments and the Travel team (x51156) for travel related checks or email a member of the Accounts Payable Staff

Request a stop payment be placed on a specific check number

Cite the payee, the check amount, the reason for the stop payment and your telephone number

State whether to:
- stop payment on the check and do not reissue it, or
- stop payment and reissue to the following correct payee and or payee address and provide that information


Some things to remember:

  • Generally the stop payment will take a minimum of 48 to 72 business hours to place with the bank and receive confirmation that it has been applied from the bank
