How to use Handelsbanken Postal Cheque Service
Your local Handelsbanken branch can provide you with Handelsbanken first class pre-paid envelopes free of charge, and there is no limit to the number that you can use.
- Complete a paying-in slip for each Handelsbanken account to be credited and place it and your cheques in the pre-paid Handelsbanken Postal Cheque Service envelope.
- Deposit the envelope into a post box.
- The credit will appear on your account on the day we process the cheque*, and will be available to withdraw four working days after the day we process the cheque.
Only sterling-denominated cheques drawn on UK financial institutions are accepted.
A maximum of 11 items can be inserted into one envelope; in a combination of cheques and paying-in slips.
As an example, if the cheque is processed on a Monday, the credit will appear on your account on Monday, it will be included for interest on Wednesday and become available for withdrawal on Friday.
*Where we receive a cheque through the Handelsbanken Postal Cheque Service, we will process it as soon as we reasonably can. This will normally be either the same working day or the next working day.
