Definition for : Lockbox system
The lockbox system is a Cash management technique. Under a lockbox system, the creditor asks its debtors to send their payments directly to a post office box that is emptied regularly by the creditor's bank. The funds are immediately paid into the banking system, without first being processed by the creditor's accounting department.
