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.

Other banks are said to be within the development stage of their own systems, with First Direct having select consumers using the technology since March. Touch ID is also a system aiming to eliminate more tradi .....

Negative Interest Rates - what it means for you

With the news that negative interest could soon be a reality, what does this actually mean for you as a bank customer?

One of the main banks RBS/NatWest has already warned customers this week that they may soon have to start paying the bank to keep money in an account. The Bank of England would need to slash interest rates below 0% in order for this measure to be considered by the banks and with the uncertainty in the economy continuing this is now a possibility.

It is not only RBS and NatWest to have warned of this drastic measure, with the Co-Operative Bank the latest to warn customers that it would not rule this out if interest rates fall into the negative, though a spokesman did mention that the bank has “not made any de .....
