Current Accounts

How long will a cheque paid into my current account take to clear?

How soon can I use my money?

If we receive it on a business day your money will be available to spend before midnight on the next business day. For example, if we receive your cheque on a Tuesday, your money will be available before midnight the next business day (Wednesday).

A business day is any day from Monday to Friday which is not a bank holiday in England and Wales.

What about weekends and bank holidays?

If we receive your cheque at the weekend or a bank holiday, your money will be available to spend before midnight two business days later. So if we receive your cheque on Saturday, it will be treated as if we received it on Monday, meaning the money will be available before midnight on Tuesday.

How long will it take to reach Tesco Bank?

Cheques posted to Freepost Tesco Bank 4943 will reach us by first class post. On average, this takes two to three business days, however, timescales may vary.
