Paying into your account

The convenience of the Post Office® – current accounts only1

If you hold a current account you can make transactions using any Post Office®* branch1 in the UK.

Paying in cash

If requested, you will shortly receive your Cash Deposit Card which you will be able to use to pay in cash at the Post Office®1 without the need for paperwork.

Take your card to the counter at any Post Office® branch and hand it to a member of staff. Your card will be swiped and the amount that you deposit will be recorded on our system the same day. Your card will be handed back to you along with a receipt for the value of cash you have deposited.

Paying in cheques

Cheques paid in at a Post Office® branch1 need to be accompanied by a ‘Cheque-only’ deposit slip and a cheque deposit envelope. You can deposit a maximum of ten cheques per slip and a receipt will be provided by the Post Office® branch1 as proof of deposit. The receipt will not detail the value or amount of cheques deposited. The cheque deposit envelope remains sealed until it reaches Santander to ensure the contents remain secure. The ‘cheque only’ deposit slip inside the cheque deposit envelope will tell us how many cheques you have deposited and their value.

You may wish to keep a record of all cheques deposited into your account using cheque summary sheets, which are available to download from our website. These will help you record information such as the name of the payer, the cheque number, the account number and sort code and the value of the cheque(s) you have deposited. We also advise you to write your account number on the back of each cheque.

We also have a range of other services to meet more complex needs. For further information on these please speak with your Relationship Director.

Please note that all your transactions are viewable via Santander Connect, Santander’s Online Corporate Banking service.

Information on cheque clearance timescales can be found on our cheque processing page.
