Can I get a cheque to clear faster?
You can now pay in cheques using your Barclays Mobile Banking app, where they’ll typically clear by 23.59 the next weekday. There’s no charge for paying in cheques like this.
Alternatively, you could ask to use the direct presentations service. It’s available in most branches – check before you visit. We’ll send the cheque by Royal Mail Special Delivery to the bank the cheque’s being paid from. It’ll then take that bank up to 2 working days to confirm whether the cheque can be paid. After that, we’ll phone you to let you know the decision. This service costs £20 per cheque.
