    What is the cut-off time for depositing cheques?

    To make a cheque deposit, please ensure that it is made before 4:00pm (cut-off time imposed by the bank). Otherwise it will be treated as a 'Late Cheque Deposit' and will be processed the next working day.

    There is no standard cut-off time for dropping cheques into the bank's collection box, as the collection period and account balance updates are subject to the individual bank's policies.

    Shall I receive interest from the funds deposited?

    Yes. The excess credit balance (after the deduction of the margin requirement and the unrealised profit and loss) in your account is interest bearing (the same as the interest rate for SCB's savings account).

    Can I open a position by depositing a cheque?
