Abstract: The cheque has a significance importance as it is used in all fields of life and is also used an important source of money. For all of this and for other reasons, the criminal legislation had to interfere to make it legal when dealing with the use of cheques according to legal contexts.

According to such law, it is considered a crime when giving a cheque without any balance or giving a cheque that has insufficient account. The current paper aims at showing the features of giving a cheque without a balance and clarifying how Iraqi law deals with such kinds of crimes. It also urges the Iraqi legislator to emphasis the punishment of giving a cheque without a balance.
