Remote Deposit Capture Systems
Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) is the process of electronically depositing a cheque into a bank account from a remote location, such as at home or in an office, without having to physically deliver the paper cheque document to the bank.
This is typically achieved by scanning a digital image of a cheque into a computer, tablet or mobile phone, then transmitting that image to the bank.
The Image Clearing System (ICS) went 'live' in the UK in October 2017, with the cheque clearing industry exchanging cheque images and data, instead of a physical paper document. This first stage was enabled by legislative changes laid out in the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill 2015.
From October 2017, all banks were required to clear some cheques based on just the image of the document and data files alone, and limited paper cheques will be exchanged between banks.
Now, all clearing banks process cheques by the image alone. No paper cheque documents are exchanged between banks anymore.
One of the main benefits of an image-based system is that the cheque clearing process is speeded up allowing faster access to funds. It means that when a customer pays in a cheque on a weekday (Monday to Friday) and it is cleared via the new image clearing system, then they will be able to withdraw the funds by 23.59 on the next weekday (excluding bank holidays) at the latest.
Cheque imaging is also about providing customers with more choice, and it means that some banks and building societies may offer their personal banking customers the additional option of paying-in an image of the cheque - by using a secure mobile banking app on their smartphone or tablet - rather than having to go to a bank branch to pay it in. For business and charity customers, banks may provide desktop cheque scanners linked to their online bank account, allowing them to pay in, as digital images, large numbers of cheques that they receive at their business premises.
Cheque Scanners & Cheque Imaging
Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) can be roughly divided into three main categories: -
- Dedicated high-volume cheque scanning for businesses receiving large numbers of cheques
- Dedicated low-volume cheque scanning for businesses receiving a limited number of cheques
- Mobile/remote deposit capture cheque scanning for microbusinesses and consumers
