I know the cheques are less and less used nowadays in UK. But I guess this functionality could be useful for EU zone when you launch the EU current account.
What? Are you kidding? I believe cheques are used less everywhere else than in the UK.
When I lived in Paris, I received/gave in general 3/4 cheques every month. None ever in London for 2.5 years.
Here in Holland I can’t remember using cheque’s … Maybee 15 years ago?
maybe there is a need for business account.
Well, yes @sixth, the French are also known for their admiration of cheques. But I remember friends paying their rent in London with weekly cheques. That was around the year 2000. And someone once asked me to recommend a typewriter because they needed one to fill out cheques. That was also a London office, sometimes around 2004 maybe?
I got my last cheque sometimes in the late 1990s. It was a refund from Apple Computer. Sent via UPS express from Cork, Ireland. Something about 30 USD. My bank charged me about 15 DM for depositing the cheque.
