Image Survivable Features
Cheque imaging is the process that enables images of cheques to be exchanged between banks and building societies, through the Image Clearing System (ICS), for clearing and payment. Its (ICS) introduction has significantly speeded up the clearing process. It has replaced the paper clearing process and the 2-4-6 cheque clearing timescales.
You will still write paper cheques as you do now, but if you receive cheques you may be offered new ways of paying them into your bank or building society account. You will still be able to pay cheques in at a branch counter just as you do now. An image of the cheque will be created by the bank or building society when the cheque is paid in and it will be this image that will be exchanged electronically through the new system between the relevant banks and building societies.
In addition, if your bank or building society offers this service, you will be able to pay in an image of a cheque – using a cheque deposit option in your mobile banking app – rather than going to a branch to pay it in.
If you are a corporate or charity customer you may be offered a scanning facility by your bank so that you can scan large numbers of cheques yourself to create images, which you will then be able to upload to your online bank for processing.
