    Hi all

    I've got a HSBC cheque from someone (AA breakdown repair cover insurance payout) and want to pay it into my current account, which is also HSBC. How long will it take to clear?

    3 days, although I had the odd one cleared in 2 days. But I think it can take up to about 5 days before the issuer cannot cancel it with their bank.

    According to HSBC call centre, funds should be available on the fourth working day after I pay it in. As I am paying it on a Saturday morning, I'm going to assume the following Friday! Progress eh?

    some branches have a special cheque paying in you are both HSBC it goes into your account on the same day. Using this machine it takes 3-4 working days if the cheque is coming from a different account.
