We don’t accept cheque deposits at the moment. However, we understand that cheques aren’t going away any time soon. In 2022, we’ll look into smart ways to process cheques and will contact you when we’ve put these in place.
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is one of the most common issuers of cheques. If you’ve received a cheque from HMRC, you can return it and request a direct bank transfer instead.
In instances where your account is being closed, any remaining funds will be returned to you by bank transfer only. We don’t issue remaining balance cheques at this stage.
Tide accounts come packed with smart and time-saving tools, letting you focus less on admin and more on your business.
That’s just the beginning! You can see more on our features page.
That will depend on whether you’re a sole trader or a registered company.
