Title Shadow

Understanding cheques and bank cards

There is a lot of information on a cheque. Some of it is useful - like your bank sort code, your account number and the cheque number.

Activity: Move over the cheque below to find out what all the areas and codes mean.

Cheque guarantee card
This is a guarantee to retailers - shops, hairdressers, car mechanics - that the bank will pay your cheque.

You show it when you hand over your cheque and the retailer will check the signature (make sure you do the same one every time!) and make a note of the number and expiry date.

The maximum amount you can write a guaranteed cheque for is shown on the card.

Activity: Move over the card to find out what all the different areas mean.
