Banking at a branch
We serve millions of customers in our branches every year and understand that friendly, face-to-face banking is as important as ever.
Deposit cheques at our branches and cash machines
The easiest and quickest way to deposit a cheque into your account is by using a cash machines at one of our branches or over the counter.
- For deposits over the counter, we can accept cheques to be paid into any type of account.
- For deposits at the cash machine, we can accept cheques paid into current accounts or savings accounts.
You can use most of our cash machines at any time, though we have 8 branches that don’t have an external cash machine. This means that you can only deposit cheques at the counter. These branches are: Canterbury, Canary Wharf, Chelsea, Isle of Man, Oxford City, St Neots, Surbiton, Tenterden and Wells.
We’ve also had to temporarily close some of our branches because of coronavirus. You can’t use the cash machines at these closed branches to deposit cheques. Take a look at our branch locator to see whether your branch is open.
Posting your cheques
You can use the postal service to deposit cheques into your current accounts, credit card accounts or savings accounts with a sort code and account number. We can’t accept cheques for mortgage or loan payments in the post.
- If you have a paying-in slip, complete it and send it back to us with the cheque.
- As a precaution, please take a photo of any cheques you send to us or keep a note of the cheque details.
- If you don’t have a paying-in slip, you can still deposit your cheque. Please write your postcode, sort code and account number the cheque is to be credited to on the back of the cheque. Without this information, we won’t be able to pay in your cheque. Read our banking at the Post Office guide to learn how to request paying-in slips.
