Cheque imaging

Cheque imaging has changed the way that cheques are processed. Digital images of cheques are exchanged between UK banks and building societies for faster clearing and payment.

Cheque imaging has sped up the clearing time for cheques, postal orders, sterling traveller's cheques, banker's drafts and dividend cheques. This only applies to cheques which are drawn on UK banks and paid into a UK bank account.

Note: We no longer accept foreign currency cheques to be paid into accounts.
