Cheques, Second Edition

Front Cover
Hong Kong University Press, Jan 1, 1991 - Law - 120 pages

The purpose of this book is to introduce the law of cheques in Hong Kong. It assumes that the reader is familiar in outline with the legal system in Hong Kong and knows something of the law of contract. Care has been taken to present the ideas comprehensibly and no technical words are used without explanation. Cheques have been put in their banking context and bills of exchange, promissory notes and other banking instruments and devices have also been described, though in less detail.

This book contains all that an accounting student needs to study for the Hong Kong Society of Accountants’ examination in respect of negotiable instruments. It is one of a series published by the Hong Kong University Press, under the General Editorship of Professor Derek Roebuck, to provide accounting students with an introduction to Hong Kong law.
