Changing Principal Address - do we need to change the address on our checks?

We have 2 business locations in 2 different states, CT and FL. We recently changed our Principal Address from CT to FL due to the fact that FL is where we have our primary operations and most of our employees. However, our Acct Dept. is located in our CT office where all of our payables, payroll, etc. are handled. Should/do we need to change the address on our business checks to the FL address, or can we leave the CT address listed? 

We have updated the address with the IRS and all states we are registered in. Are there any other places the address needs to be changed?


I don't think it matters to the bank or the IRS what is printed on your checks.  Technically you can write a check on a napkin and it is legally valid.  Trying to get a bank to accept it may be a problem...

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
