    Only the authorized signatories of the company are allowed to sign cheques. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because only the authorized signatories of a company have the legal authority to sign cheques. These signatories are typically designated by the company's board of directors or management and are responsible for ensuring that the company's funds are properly disbursed. By limiting the signing authority to authorized individuals, the company can maintain control over its finances and prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing its funds.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because similar stock items should not be entered into the same stock card. Each stock item should have its own individual stock card to maintain accurate inventory records and prevent confusion. Combining similar stock items into one card can lead to errors in tracking quantities, identifying specific items, and managing stock levels effectively.

    When writing a cheque for "Singapore dollars two thousand and three hundred only", the amount in figures should be written as S$2,300.00. In this case, "S$" represents the currency symbol for Singapore dollars, and "2,300.00" represents the numerical value of the amount. Writing the amount in this format ensures clarity and accuracy when processing the cheque.

    The sales invoice must be signed off by the Sales & Marketing Manager because they are responsible for overseeing the sales and marketing activities of the company. As such, they have the authority to approve and finalize sales transactions, including the issuance of invoices. This ensures that the invoice is accurate, complete, and in compliance with the company's sales and marketing policies. The Sales & Marketing Manager's signature also serves as a confirmation that the sale has been properly authorized and recorded.
