How fast will cheques that I issue from my account be cleared?

If your account has a cheque facility and you issue a cheque on your account, it will normally be deducted from your account two business days after the recipient pays it into their account.

From 30 October 2017 some banks are introducing a new system for clearing cheques called the Image Clearing System. This will allow banks to clear a digital image of a cheque, rather than the original paper cheque. You will still pay in paper cheques in the usual way, but some banks will use images in the clearing process.

The funds from imaged cheques will be available to customers on the next working day.

Triodos Bank will be introducing this system at a later date, when the service becomes available through RBS, our clearing bank. We will update our customers who regularly use cheques in advance of this change.
