    Paying a cheque into someone else's account 29th Oct 09 at 12:41 AM
    Hi folks

    Quick question on behalf of someone - is it still possible to endorse/countersign a cheque and have it paid into someone else's account?

    The situation is a cheque has been made out to someone without a bank account. They would like to pay it into their daughter's bank account.

    With the current postal issues they asked if I knew whether it was possible without having to send the cheque back and have it reissued. Taking the cheque to a "We Cash Cheques" shop isn't viable as they say the commission charge is quite high.

    Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
