How to write out a French cheque


Writing out a French cheque can be a bit daunting at first so here's how to fill one out.

Writing out a French cheque is very similar to filling out a UK cheque, the main difference when writing out a French cheque is that the amount that the cheque is for goes at the top where in an English cheque you would normally put the name of the person that you are making the cheque payable to.
