Cash and cheque services for businesses

Everyday banking via the Post Office® and Handelsbanken Postal Cheque Service

Coronavirus update

Due to the impact of the coronavirus, the quickest way to receive money is to be paid digitally; so if possible, you should ask individuals and businesses to pay you this way.

Our Postal Cheque Service is available.

Post Offices® may have restricted availability, so please look on the Post Office® websiteOpens in a new window before you travel.

Picking Apples in the tree Apple trees

Handelsbanken has partnered with the Post Office® to deliver a range of banking services for convenient and accessible banking. Businesses can access banking services across the Post Office® branch network in the UK.

Post Office® Cash Deposit Service

Pay in up to £2,000 of cash per deposit at any Post Office® branch. If you need to pay in larger amounts, Main Post Office® branches can accept up to £20,000 in cash per deposit.

Post Office® Cash Withdrawal Service

This service enables you to withdraw up to £500 of cash (subject to your transaction limits) at any Post Office® branch, using your Handelsbanken Debit Card. You will be given a printed receipt to confirm the transaction. Please retain this for your records.

Post Office® Change Giving Service

This service enables you to exchange up to £1,000 of sterling notes for the same value of £5 notes and/or coin at an agreed Post Office® branch, using a Handelsbanken Change Giving card (subject to an application process).

Handelsbanken Postal Cheque Service

Deposit cheques into your Handelsbanken account via our pre-paid Postal Cheque Service.

Using HSBC branch services

You can also deposit cash (up to a maximum of £7,500 per deposit) and cheques into your account using your Handelsbanken paying-in book via the counter at HSBC branches.

Please note that HSBC, which provides counter services for our Corporate Banking customers and some of our Individual Banking customers, is closing 82 branches throughout 2021. HSBC also plans to move some of its branches to a digital-only service. This means a further 178 branches will no longer be able to offer counter services by the end of 2022.

You can find a list of branches that are closing or moving to a digital-only service, along with where to find your nearest HSBC here: Branch Locator - HSBC UKOpens in a new window

Counter services at the Post Office®

We have partnered with the Post Office®, which offers a comparable cash deposit service to HSBC. Unfortunately HSBC open credit and cheque deposits cannot be offered in a similar way at Post Office® counters. However, the Post Office® Cash Withdrawal Service and our Postal Cheque Service are available as alternatives.

For more details on these services, please speak to your account manager.
