Important Notice



We’re removing cheques and drafts as a method to receive or make payments after 25 June 2021.
Most of our customers now prefer the safety, convenience and speed of making and receiving payments digitally. We have seen a large decline in the use of cheques and that’s why we’ve decided to phase out cheques as a method of payment after 25 June 2021.

To give you time to make the necessary arrangements for alternative options, we are phasing the change as follows:

Friday 28 May 2021

  • The last day you can order HSBC cheque books.
  • The last day you can purchase a HSBC bank cheque or bank draft from our New Zealand office.

Friday 25 June 2021

  • The last day you can deposit a cheque, bank cheque or bank draft to your HSBC account at any HSBC or Westpac branch.
  • The last day HSBC cheques can be used to make payments to accounts with other banks that still accept cheques.
  • The last day you can use your cheque encashment facility.

We’ve put together some information here to help you make the transition to more convenient and secure methods of making and receiving payments.
