"I have instructed that the cheque latest have to be issued by 15th every month, is there any problems? Please voiced out earlier if there's any issues in future. This will be the last time I'll be reminding on this."

I would be wonder, whether the last sentence is correct or no!? "I'll be reminding on this" i think it must be "I am reminding on this" or "I reminded on this".

Thank

I don't think any of the expressions you suggest about "remind" is the one you should be using. However, reading the rest of the instructions I'm under the impression there's a lot to be changed, and that the verb "remind" is not the most serious problem... –  Paola Mar 27 '13 at 16:02
    
Oh know it, but i would like to know the last one, this is not my sentence, this is boss sentence :D –  Danial Mar 27 '13 at 16:18
    
"I have instructed that the cheques have to be issued by 15th every month latest, is there any problem? Please voice out earlier if there are any issues in future. This was the last time I was reminding on this." is it right? –  Danial Mar 27 '13 at 16:21
    
I'd say "In the future, please let us know in due time if there are any issues. This is the last time I'll remind you about/of this." –  Paola Mar 27 '13 at 16:25
    
well, why we must use future tense!? I means, why you said "I'll remind you about/of this" why you did not say "I reminded you about/of this", thanks! –  Danial Mar 27 '13 at 16:37

As @Paola mentioned, there are other things in the sentence that needs reviewing/changed. Try a variant from the examples below for what you are trying to convey:

  1. I have instructed to issue the check latest by the 15th of every month. Please let my know if if you are not clear about the instructions. I will not remind this again.
  2. This is my final reminder to issue the check(s) latest by 15th of every month. Please let me know right now if you are unclear about the instructions.
  3. I am not going to remind you again on issuing the check latest by 15th of every month. Let me know right now if there is something you are not clear about.

There can be countless other variants to convey the same message.

oh i got why he has used future continues, he wanted to say,"This would be the last time, I won't be reminding on this." In grammar point of view this sentence is right, am I right? –  Danial Mar 27 '13 at 17:11
