We welcome participation in our clearing system by organisations interested in offering cheque services to their customers.

Cheque processing is currently undergoing a fundamental change with the development of the Image Clearing System, which will replace the current paper clearing process. The new system will improve the customer experience, reward innovation and make it much easier for organisations of all sizes to participate directly in the exchange process.  

To make industry-wide cheque imaging a reality in the UK, an implementation plan is being agreed with all parties. Timescales for implementation will be announced over the coming months.

While development to support this substantial change is in process, we encourage all potential new entrants to: keep up to date with developments; give their feedback on the opportunities that the programme to create the new Image Clearing System will offer; and register with us their desire to participate once the new system is launched.  

To register your interest and to find out more details on the various ways in which you will be able to participate please contact us at info@chequeandcredit.co.uk.
