As part of our stakeholder engagement programme to spread the word about ICS and the faster clearing timescales, we are holding a series of Cheque User Forums during September and October 2017 in a number of major cities up and down the UK. The events are aimed at consumer bodies, charities, businesses, councils, public sector and trade bodies so that they can hear first-hand what the proposed changes to the clearing process will mean to them.

The historic Merchant Taylors’ Hall in London was the venue for the Cheque User Forum that took place on 6th June. 2017 The event, attended by over 30 representatives from businesses, charities and regulators, was an opportunity for those present to comment on a range of issues ahead of the introduction of cheque imaging, which starts to roll out on 30th October 2017.
