Hi all,

I have been doing my Unit 10 report and I have got to the cost benfit analysis part and I cannot find prices anywhere for pre-printed cheques and BACs payments.

If anyone could give me some info on the price of pre-printed cheques and the price of sending payments by BACs I would be really gratefull!

Thanks you!

    Just looked this up at work -

    Pre printed cheques £222 + vat for 1000 Cheques
    and each BACS run costs £3.00 plus 20p for BACS Payments/Collections (up to 10000 per annum) or 12p for BACS Payments/Collections (over 10000 per annum)

    Hope that helps

    Hi, don't forget to include any charges the bank makes for cashing cheques and the costs of staff time spent in doing both.

    Hi Jo

    What would the bank charge on average for cashing cheques?

    Its a long time since I dealt with these things in a work place and I'm doing the case study so there is limited information.

    Don't forget the price of stamps versus email statements/remittance advice!

    I'm investigating this at work at the moment.
