What is a Business Quick Deposit?

Business Quick Deposit (BQD) is a quick, easy and secure way for non-personal customers to pay in cash and cheques via the branch network without having to wait whilst the deposit is checked.

Notes, coins, and cheques are sealed in a uniquely barcoded tamper-proof wallet. This wallet can then be paid in at either our branch counter or at an Automated Deposit Machine (also known as a BQD machine) available in over 280 branches across the UK. With either option, an acknowledgement slip is provided which will enable you to verify that the wallet has been received safely. 

You will receive same day credit for the stated cash value, and we will endeavour to count and notify you of any differences within five working days.
