You can receive payments in cheques for certain types of cheques and only by visiting a Standard Chartered bank branch. 

Do note there are 2 types of cheques

1) Bearer cheques and 2) Account Payee Only cheques.

1) A Bearer cheque, as its name implies, is a cheque where the original name written on it doesn’t matter.

The way it works is that the cheque is presented at a Standard Chartered branch and the bank teller is instructed of the Neat Business Account number (typically by writing it at the back of the cheque). The cheque should clear within 1 business day.

2) We cannot normally accept account payee only cheques. If you need to receive such cheques, please contact us at 

You can recognise an Account Payee Only cheque when either:
i) “Account Payee Only” is printed on the cheque
ii) The words “OR BEARER” are crossed
iii) There are 2 lines drawn on the cheque, typically diagonally on the top left hand corner of the cheque or vertically in the middle

Please note that online / wire transfers can of course be made to you in your company's name and we encourage you to ask your clients to pay you through transfer.
