Cheque processing

In 2017 the process of cheque clearing in the UK will undergo an important and necessary change.

This means that your cheques will clear much faster. The main difference is that instead of exchanging physical cheques, UK banks will exchange digital images of cheques.


We are currently developing new systems and processes to enable this change to take place in late 2017.


We will of course update you ahead of these changes coming into force.

Coin In

Pay in large amounts of coins to credit into your account.

Our Coin In machine allows customers to pay in large volumes of coin.  Customers place their coins into the loading tray, and the machine will automatically count them.  A voucher will then be produced for the customer to take to the branch counter to credit the amount to their account.


Business customers can safely pay in out of hours using our secure Nightsafe boxes.

The Nightsafe facility provides a secure means for Non-Personal customers to pay in out of hours, using Nightsafe boxes or wallets containing notes, coin and cheques with an accompanying pay in slip. The Nightsafe boxes and wallets are provided upon sign up. Deposits can be made via a secure safe built into the wall outside a branch. A key which is unique to the customer is provided to open and close the safe door. The contents of the wallet/boxes will then be processed the following working day by branch staff. Any customers not already registered to use Nightsafe will be required to do so in order to use the facility.


Depositors are advised to see that their insurance policy covers the contents of the wallets/boxes left in the Nightsafe.
