When your overseas trading partners pay by cheque, we can help you pay them into your account and realise their value quickly.
The majority of international payments are made electronically - making them faster, cheaper and more secure.
Some of your international buyers may pay with overseas cheques and drafts, or currency cheques drawn in the UK, and we can help you pay these in.
If you regularly receive more than four Dollar or Euro cheques a month we suggest you consider our lockbox services. When you are handling just a few cheques a month, we suggest negotiation and collection.

When your trading partners sends cheques payable outside the UK or foreign cheques payable in the UK (excluding Euros), we can take care of these for you with cheque collection or negotiation services. You'll need to liaise with an HSBC branch or your Relationship manager to process the cheque.
Cheque negotiation - You can use the funds before the cheque has cleared. If the cheque is returned unpaid we will take the money back.
Cheque collection - We credit your account only when we have received funds or confirmation that the payment has cleared. Collection is often used where the risk of advancing funds from a foreign cheque is considered too high, or when you need to know that the cheque has, or will definitely be paid.
