I was slow spelling Cheques as well but it is a sensible decision they have made. I could not think of a cheap alternative.

See fourm member's 5:25pm post for the true explanation.

I cannot remember when I last had a cheque book let alone used one, nothing more than a nuisance, if I get one its means I have to toddle off to a bank and still wait days for it to clear.

As a business dealing with a mixture of customers - some who just order a couple of pounds worth of stuff once a year, some shops who order a hundred pounds worth a month and agents who order thousand of pounds worth, we still bank cheques every day. We also pay a lot of small bills by cheque for goods we purchase, we also use BACS and internet banking. many of our smaller customer have no other way of paying us - we even get a few who send us chash in the post.

Does this now mean that the clearing banks decision to scrap the cheque guarantee scheme was premature?

We still do a lot of business with cheques, people want paying and a cheque is a very good form of proof that you have payed, if we owe a farmer for 5 bales of hay he normally doesn't have a card machine on him.

He probably wouldn't accept a cheque, either.

F.E we pay for 2 by cheque and 3 by cash, still can't figure out why we have to do it that way.

So why don't you pay them all by cash?

They can't refuse legal tender, as they can a cheque, and if you have that much cash to hand anyway a bit more surely won't make that much difference?
