Re: Lock Box Service
Dear Mr. ________:
This is in response to your letter of September 1, 1982 inquiring whether ________, a depositary agency, may provide lock box service for certain persons who maintain accounts with Canadian branches of your bank.
Our understanding of the proposed service is as follows. The service would only be provided for local (California) offices of Canadian companies who maintain deposit accounts with ________ branches in Canada. Collection of local accounts receivable for these companies would be mailed to the lock box here. Your San Francisco office will process the items and wire the proceeds to the Canadian accounts. Supporting documentation and copies of the items will be furnished to the companies.
Based upon the above understanding, our conclusion would be that such transactions fall within an agency’s power to conduct a commercial banking business as authorized by Financial Code Sections 1755 (a) and 1755 (a)(2).
Very truly yours,
Superintendent of Banks
Deputy Superintendent
Office of Policy
