Online cheque clearing time checker

Posted in 'Banking' by Barry Stamp

10 November 2011

Anyone who has struggled to work out how long it takes for a cheque to ‘clear’ will find invaluable the a href=" http://www.chequeandcredit.co.uk/246/-/page/cheque-checker/ " target="_blank">online cheque clearing time checker.

The checker calculates the maximum time it takes for a paid-in cheque to start to earn interest, (or to reduce interest if your account is overdrawn), when the funds will be made available to draw against, and when the cheque finally clears and there is no risk of the cheque being returned unpaid (bouncing).

In the checkmyfile Banking and Credit Card Survey, respondents rated their banks very differently in terms of customer satisfaction. RBS, HSBC and NatWest filled 3 of the top 5 places and each offers a basic current account with no fee, which should suit most needs, and these banks are big enough to cope with more complicated stuff should the need arise.

“The Bank of England is taking steps to ensure we can assess a range of future risks from a number of different sources to inform our micro and macro prudential policy decisions”.

Under the £50bn limit imposed by the PRA, several lenders including L .....

Lloyds hard sell rears ugly head again

Lloyds Bank have been accused of “falling back into old hard-selling habits” just days after its boss Antonio Horta-Osorio boasted that the company was fast becoming the “best bank for customers”. The 13% tax payer owned bank abandoned hard sales targets after the PPI mis-selling scandal but following dismal uptake figures for a number of financial products in the first half of 2015, bosses have decided to drive transactions for credit cards, mortgages and insurances.

In the first 12 weeks of 2015, loan applications fell by 45% compared to the same period within 2014 and insurance premiums sold totalled 15,000 as opposed to 50,000 the previous year.

To counteract the waning sales, Lloyds have unveiled ‘Project Labrador’. N .....
