HSBC Bank Cheques 2024.

HSBC Bank is Stopping issuing New Cheque Books from April 2024.

The government has said that Australia will stop using cheques by 2030.

The Government’s Strategic Plan for Australia’s Payments System (the Strategic Plan) announced the Government’s intention to wind down the cheques system by no later than 2030, with government use of cheques to be phased out by the end of 2028.

However, some banks will stop earlier than this, due to the current very low usage of cheques by their customers.

Some banks have already stopped issuing cheque books on some new accounts, starting from 2023.

Beyond Bank is one bank that will cease processing their own cheques in 2024.
