The answer depends first on your definition of cost per check issued – do you mean just the cost of the check preparation/signing/issuing (with associated bank costs) or do you mean the entire soup-to-nuts accounts payable cost to pay a vendor? Assuming you mean the former, factors include ---material costs such as check stock,toner, the labor costs for printing, bank fees for disbursement accounts, positive pay cost and the transaction cost (i.e. fee for clearing a check).
