Producing cheque payments in an evolving digital environment can be costly and time consuming.

With the continued rise of digital payment methods, the demand and usage of cheques is no doubt declining. However, making digital payments when bank account details are not available can create problems. Organisations making payments such as remediation or one-off payments are faced with the issue of those who don’t have a bank account or they are not in possession of bank details. For many a cheque can be the only form of payment capable of being processed and so they remain an important and secure way of paying someone.

The introduction of cheque imaging has helped offset the shrinking bank branch networks so businesses can process cheques without having to go to the local branch. This ability to image a cheque is not without its complications though. Where previously banks would have seen the physical cheque and be able to assess whether it was a genuine document or that it had not been fraudulently altered, the new clearing system now deals with just an image of the cheque. 

 

In order to stay one step ahead of fraudsters, the addition of bank-mandated Image Survivable Features (ISFs), codes and marks that remain as part of the image and can be used to check the actual cheque content. This has helped to reduce the levels of cheque fraud so that cheques still remain one of the safest forms of payment.

The cost of running an internal finance department that produces limited numbers of cheques either on a regular or ad hoc basis can place a strain on company finances. In addition, amendments to existing cheque stock with the addition of bank-mandated ISFs can be an issue for internal teams. High street banks are now setting dates after which cheques will no longer be processed without these fraud prevention features added. Amending existing cheque stock to accommodate these features can be challenging. Under current UK cheque printing regulations, cheque layouts and personalisation can only be produced by approved accredited cheque printers.
