Nor can Natwest. When I last asked (probably about a year ago) they still
intended to offer it but were a long way off being able to.
Barclays offer it to some customers: my sister was offered it a while ago,
but my wife still hasn't, and both bank with Barclays.
Being able to pay in at the post office is useful if there's no branch of
your bank nearby. Where I was living a year ago, the branch in one of the
two markets towns nearby (Leyburn) had closed many years earlier, and the
one in the other market town (Richmond, which also served Catterick Camp)
closed a few months after we moved there. The nearest open branch was a
45-minute journey each way in Northallerton.
Using the post office you still have the long postal delay for cheques to be
posted to a clearing centre, instead of the paid-in date being the date you
hand the cheque over in a branch; the only thing you save over posting the
cheque to a branch is the cost of a stamp.
Most of us phones where we can pay in cheques. Only a Luddite would not
have such a smart phone.
Most banks allow you to pay in cheques at their cash machines.
The alternative is to simply spend the money as cash, and if need be
send a cheque in lieu.
Some don't have a clue!!
He's simply showing off, that he's got all these cheques to pay in.
Notice road fund tax refund "cheques" there to pay in, implying that he definitely owns
more than one vehicle,
One possibly a motor-home complete with its own shower, maybe ?
Banks are considered essential workers, so I'd suggest they are only manning
key branches. I need cash, so they had best not shut banks as cash is what I
pay my PAs with. Because the amount varies and timesheets and shopping vary,
payroll systems are unworkable for the blind.
