We have raised the new check and settled in the 908 Mr. Shah’s room along with his sing. Definitely, we will address to FO as well next time.

Welcome to the forum. :hi:

I'm afraid I don't understand your sentences at all.

What does "raised the new check" mean?
What have you "settled in"?
What is "the 908"?
What is Mr Shah's "sing"?
What is "FO"?
What are you going to address to FO next time?

I don't understand how you "raise a cheque". We write cheques, cash cheques, pay in cheques, and cheques bounce but I've never heard "raise a cheque" in BrE.

I know that "check" in AmE is "bill" in BrE so in AmE people say "Can I get the check please?" and in BrE it's "Can I get the bill please?". So does "raise a check" mean "produce a bill/invoice"?
