How to pay in cheques using our Business Mobile Banking app
In the Business Banking Mobile App select the three dots on the account tile for the account you want to pay the cheque into.
Then select ‘Deposit cheque & view deposit history.’
Enter the exact value of the cheque. To keep track of where the money is from, or what it’s for, you can choose to add a reference.
Tap ‘Front of cheque’ to take a photo.
If asked, ‘allow’ access to your camera to take a photo by selecting ‘OK’.
Lay the cheque on a flat surface with a dark background. Hold the camera level and directly above. When a green border appears, hold still and the app will take the photo.
Tap ‘Back of cheque’. Repeat the process for the reverse of the cheque – even if it’s blank.
Review the details and if correct simply tap ‘Confirm’.
That’s it, you’ve deposited your cheque. Tap view deposit history to see when the money will be available.
Pay in a cheque – frequently asked questions
There are two limits for cheque deposits in the app.
- Single cheque limit: £5,000
- Daily total: £5,000
It’s a way to pay in cheques using your mobile device. The app uses your device camera to capture images of the cheque and ‘reads’ the details to pay the money into your account. It’s simple, convenient and secure – and can save you a trip to a branch.
Funds will normally be available in your account at the end of the next working day. So, if you deposit a cheque before 10pm on a normal weekday, that’s classed as the first working day. Your money will be available by the end of the following working day.
You can deposit most types of cheque accepted by UK banks and in pounds sterling. This includes UK Government Payable Orders, postal orders, banker’s drafts and Building Society cheques – but not traveller’s cheques, bank giro credits and various non-standard cheques. If we don’t accept a particular type of cheque, the app will tell you when you try to take the image.
