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.

Your paying-in point is as close as your nearest post box, or hand in your envelope at the Post Office® if you are also paying in cash.

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.

  1. 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.
  2. Deposit the envelope into a post box.
  3. Your account will be credited on the day we process the cheque* (e.g Monday) and the funds will become available for withdrawal two days later (e.g. Wednesday). If a cheque paid into your account is returned unpaid, we will let you know by post and deduct the value of the cheque from your account.

Additional information

A paying-in slip is required for each Handelsbanken account to be credited. 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.

*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.
