While we live in a world where payments can be made electronically, there is still a need for paper cheques. They continue to be relevant as they offer a paper trail, reduce risk, and they help to serve a need both for individuals and businesses. They are convenient to use and make it possible to keep good track of all of your transactions.
With paper cheques, there is a trail so it is easier to find out what was spent and where it was cashed. That can be important when it comes to having records to verify you made a payment. A photo copy of the cheque before you send it as well as one from the bank when you get your statement showing it was cashed can help you to keep very good records.
