  • Post Offices have various cut-off times and services, so do check with the Post Office you wish to use to see what they offer and what their cut-off time is for deposits, as this can impact when any deposit you make credits your account Cash paid in at a Post Office using a Visa Debit card will be added to your NatWest account immediately
  • Cash paid in using a paying-in slip will be added to your NatWest account by the end of the next working day, if paid in before the Post Office cut off time. If missed, this will be two working days.
  • Please ensure when paying in cash that you use a barcoded paying-in slip. If your paying-in slips do not contain a barcode, please contact us and we will provide you with them.
  • Cheques paid into the Post Office will be added to your NatWest account when we receive them from the Post Office, which is normally within two working days. Cheques will follow the normal cheque clearing cycle once we have received them. Please note, sometimes it might take a little longer for cheques to reach us from the Post Office
  • You can't mix cash and cheque payments, this will need to be two separate transactions
