Checks 101: The Basics
Scanning checks…is that legal?
The Check Clearing Act for the 21st Century (Check 21) was signed into law by President Bush October 28, 2003, and became effective October 28, 2004. Check 21 allows banks to replace original paper checks with "substitute checks" that are made from digital copies of the originals.
Check 21 was created to reduce the time, risks, and costs associated with paper check processing. With Check 21, banks are now able to send and receive digital images of checks electronically, eliminating the need to physically transport paper checks between banks, or between merchants and banks.
How does it work?
Check 21 allows you to scan checks for submission to your bank, using Remote Deposit Capture. Intuit Check Solutions for QuickBooks was built to support check scanning, but you can also accept checks by phone, without a scanner. Your customer reads you the account and routing numbers and account type over the phone, you enter it in a short form, and you send it for processing. Easy.
