Online cheque clearing time checker

Posted in 'Banking' by Barry Stamp

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.

RBS deny access to customers' forgotten cash

Royal Bank of Scotland’s plans to restore public trust in the state-backed bank have been dealt another blow, after it emerged that it has denied thousands of customers access to their cash.

Around 4,500 former customers were trying to track down long lost cash worth a total of £225,000. However, when an official tracing service pointed to RBS as holding the money, the bank in error turned them away.

A spokesman for RBS says, “Unfortunately we wrongly advised some customers who had made a request through the BBA Lost Account scheme that they did not hold a dormant account with us. We are very sorry that this happened and as soon as we discovered this we took steps to correct our error. We are writing to all affected custome .....
