Does Westpac accept cheques?
If you receive a cheque you’ll need to contact the person or company who gave it to you and ask them to pay you another way, which could be directly into your bank account.
Please destroy any unused cheques and cheque books yourself or take them into your nearest Westpac branch and we will destroy them for you.
If you need help with other ways to pay, please call 0800 400 600 or pop into your nearest branch and we can talk about online banking, phone banking or perhaps setting up automatic payments and direct debits. We also have solutions if your account requires more than one signatory.
