Unable to Locate Account - UTL - Unable to Locate - When a check or draft is returned with the Unable to Locate or UTL stamp, this means the bank cannot find any account with that account number in its records.

This is most likely a check by phone or check draft where the wrong information was entered or provided.  Unable to locate checks or drafts may have details as to what exactly was wrong, such as a circled account number, or invalid routing number message. 

Some UTL or unable to locate account checks have handwritten notes on the stamp to help the merchant locate the proper details.

Other reasons could be the addition or absence of leading zeros in an account number, such as a customer with the account number 123456, but on the check the account number shows 000123456.  Unable to locate checks cannot be re-deposited. A new item must be created or a new check would be required from the account holder.
