Slide19 l.jpg

Do the checks need to be endorsed before they are scanned?

Yes, all checks should be endorsed prior to scanning.

Bank provides technical support


Slide21 l.jpg

Should we place a heavy diagonal line across all scanned checks?

It is not necessary. Be careful not to alter the check until you know a good image has been stored on the banking system and your internal system, if you are storing images on an in-house server.


Slide22 l.jpg

What do we do with the checks after scanning? checks?

There is no hard fast answer. What you do with the checks depends on the needs of your agency operations… 


Slide23 l.jpg

What do we do with the checks after scanning (cont’d)? checks?

How many checks do you process daily? Do you have a secure area to store the checks?  Our experience has found that most agencies using remote deposit keep the checks anywhere from ten days to six months before destroying. 


Slide24 l.jpg

What do we do with the checks after scanning (cont’d)? checks?

Best practice would be to keep the checks a minimum of one recon cycle or at least 21 days from deposit.  This allows enough time for return items to surface and for the bank statement to be reconciled.


Slide25 l.jpg

How do we dispose of the checks? checks?

Shred in a secured manner - in house or contract. Consider audit concerns such as dual control over shredding, logging when the checks were shredded or who did the shredding. 


Slide26 l.jpg

Should check types/sizes be placed together? checks?

Yes, it helps identify problems if the business checks are placed back to back, then the personal checks and money orders. 


Slide27 l.jpg

Should check types/sizes be placed together (cont’d)? checks?

Most users find it helpful to place money orders either first or last in the batch.  Money orders generally require manual intervention due to the placement of money amounts on the documents.


Slide28 l.jpg

Will the scanner pick up pink or purple ink? checks?

Yes, the scanner will if the ink is dark enough.  As would be expected, checks with pictures and lightly colored ink can be challenging.  You may have to enter or verify the dollar amounts on these checks.


Slide29 l.jpg

Does the scanner note differences in the written amount and the numerical amount?

No, the scanner picks up the numerical symbols in the box on the right side of the check.  It is up to the person doing the deposit to verify the amounts are the same. 


Slide30 l.jpg

Does the scanner note differences in the written amount and the numerical amount (cont’d)?

Running two calculator tapes, one on numerical and one on written, is considered a best practice to identify these types of differences.

“The Bank Services Unit at TAX began

utilizing Wachovia's Remote Deposit

Capture product in the Fall of 2007 to

address a needed internal process in

clearing small volume, but large dollar

special handle deposits. This product has

exceeded our needs:…”

  • Our COOP plan for deposits, if we could not access the building for a short period of time, would be to return to manual deposits. If the building was not accessible for a long period of time, we would request that a teller scanner be set up at our alternate location.
