Greetings,

Hope somebody here can clear my doubt tongue.gif

How much bank will charge if I get banker's cheque from them?

So far, these are what I found from their website:
Maybank - RM5.00
CIMB - RM2.00 + stamp duty of RM0.15
Bank Islam - RM1.00 + RM0.15 (stamp duty)
Public Bank - RM2.00 per piece + stamp duty

Do I need to have a savings/current account at that particular bank?
Can I use banker's cheque to pay car downpayment?
Any different between demand draft and banker's cheque?

Thank you

I don't think that it's a necessary to have an account with the bank in order to issue a banker's cheque.

Can I use banker's cheque to pay car downpayment?
Yes and highly recommended since it involves large sum of money.

If I'm not mistaken the United States use the term Banker's Cheque...while the British use the term Bank Draft. We follow the British term. Last time you need to have a saving/current account if you use HSBC Bank Draft...

No, you don't need to be account holder to get a demand draft or banker cheque.

The difference between demand draft and banker cheque (got slight difference actually),
for local currency and in Malaysia, the banks will issue a banker cheque, as the money is drawed from its own bank, while for foreign currency they will issue a demand draft as the money is draw at third party bank in overseas, not its own bank.

This is the difference that I could spot, I might be wrong.

How about the check clearance policies for banker's checks? I'm familiar with the practice in the US where a banker's check is almost like cash and can be cleared immediately. However my last attempt at depositing a MBB banker's check at Stanchart still took 3 days to clear. Is this normal? Why do I have to provide the money up front if it's not the same as cash?

For Banker's Cheque (BCQ) CIMB

Bank Charges: RM2.00 + RM0.15 (stamp duty)
Acc holder is not a requirement. just bring ur ic and of course money tho

The BCQ clearance is 1 1/2 days for CIMB cheques. Same like deposit cheque into acc. For other's bank cheque took 2 1/2 days for clearance. if u wanna pay for downpayment for big sum of money i suggest u use BCQ for transaction. Safe and easy. Just need to wait for cheque clearance. it's not safe nowadays to carry big bag out of a bank tongue.gif.. Heheh there goes my 1st post. Anymore question bout banking method feel free to ask me. Pleasure to help

no it won't bounce, the buyer already cash in the cheque into bank, so the money is with the bank, not the buyer
if is personal cheque, then there is a possibility of bounce cheque

correct me if i'm wrong

Fyi, there are fake banker cheques. I just found out from the sargeant when making a police report last week, when he share with me one of the con case.

The safest transaction is by cash or wait for cheque to clear before deliver.

Bump old thread.


Guys, I just came back from an auction which I didn't manage to win the bid.
So with this banker's cheque, do I need to bank it back personally into my account?
Or I can drop it off in an cheque box?

TQ

You can cancel the cheque and they will refund the money to you. There is a penalty though. It's RM10 to cancel a banker's cheque, if my memory serves me correctly.

Bring some cash to your preferred bank and ask them to issue you a cheque. If you have an account with the particular bank you go to, you can ask them to directly to deduct the money from there. Each banker's cheque will cost RM2.00 + RM0.15 stamp duty = RM2.15.

Hi,

I just sold and delivered my car. I was given a banker's cheque for the full amount (which I immediately banked in). Now my worry is that if a bankers cheque can be stopped by the buyer? I don't want to be left with no $$ and no car!!! Please advise asap. Thanks

Yes. You can. But the cheque must be made payable to you and not other people. Depends on the day and what time you deposit the cheque, the cheque will take as little as 1 day to clear.

Not sure if the money will be returned immediately. Anyway, if it is lost or stolen, i believe you will have to lodge a police report. Things will be easier if you can just produce the original cheque.

Not totally sure about this but just to be safe, just go back to the bank branch you bought the cheque from.

Thank you for prompt reply! Don't worry...it's payable to me only...just unsure whether I need to go to counter or can just use cheque deposit machine like any other cheque that's all...I'm too busy to go to bank counter tongue.gif

Again, thanks for your help bro~Cheers! biggrin.gif

Hey guys, what is the charges from Public Bank for them to issue a bank draft? Is the rate RM2.00 + RM0.15 stamp duty = RM2.15 standard on all banks?
I have a savings account with them.

The cashiers order can only pay to Party A, so its useless to Party B even if he steals it.

btw just for your knowledge, is is STILL possible to fraud using a genuine cashiers order. Example:

Mr. A buys something (eg: hp,computer,etc) from you with a bank draft under your name. You give him the goods. You can bank in the cashiers order on the same day but it still needs time to clear from the issuing bank. While he can immediately cancel the C/O if he goes to his bank and report it as lost.

This happened before so be careful, even thought its bankers cheque, you better wait until the funds are cleared into your account then only release the goods

You can't post-date a bank draft. You have to give them the money before they give you the draft. And it will always be dated the day they give you the draft, right? tongue.gif

Wodenus is correct, bank draft is issued by the bank and i don't think it can be postdated. Bank draft will only be issued when payment is made. So once the bank draft is issued it can be confirmed that you will be getting the money unless the car dealer decides to cancel the bank draft before you bank in

Greetings,

Hope somebody here can clear my doubt tongue.gif 

How much bank will charge if I get banker's cheque from them?

So far, these are what I found from their website:
Maybank - RM5.00
CIMB - RM2.00 + stamp duty of RM0.15
Bank Islam - RM1.00 + RM0.15 (stamp duty)
Public Bank - RM2.00 per piece + stamp duty

Do I need to have a savings/current account at that particular bank? 
Can I use banker's cheque to pay car downpayment?
Any different between demand draft and banker's cheque?

Thank you

Not neccessary to have a saving or current account then only can apply for banker's cheque. Then their charges should be RM2.15 per cheque.
U apply it for your car installment? Why don't u straight pay the cash over the counter? Save money ma~~

I have a silly question to ask... if I receive cheques from someone say from AmBank and Hong Leong bank... can I use the Maybank cheque deposit machine to bank in to my Maybank account?

Silly question here. I make a bankers cheque (created in Maybank KLCC branch) for home bidding but didnt managed to use it.

So I went to convert it back to cash & deposit into my bank account (this was done at MBB PJ New Town) but today got message, MBB inw Rtn Chq. Yr chq deposited is returned due to OTH NON CHARGEABLE.

I've lost the slip copy and all papers for this banker cheque & only got screenshot from my iPad. ANy advise on how to proceed?

Question, what will happen if the bankers cheque expired? Will it return back to my account after 6 months? Because I write the name for the recipeint as CIMB since the auction is done by CIMB...

Any advise is highly appreciated.

Hi fellow bankers I got a question regarding bank drafts, can a bank draft be post dated? And under what condition the issuer can cancel the bank draft with out the bank draft but maybe just the receipt copy. And can I walk into the issuing bank to verify the authenticity of the bank draft. THANKS mates.

no it won't bounce, the buyer already cash in the cheque into bank, so the money is with the bank, not the buyer
if is personal cheque, then there is a possibility of bounce cheque

correct me if i'm wrong

Bankers cheque is issued by the bank.

Personal cheque is issues by you/individuals.

I think the fees are negligible bro... 2~5 bucks? Its not like we use Bank Draft daily ..... the convenience (ie which branch closer) more important...

Let's say i want to make a postal order with amount of RM60, after paying RM60 to the post office staff will they be able to issue the postal order on the spot?

I have a question and I hope some sifu can reply

I want to buy a banker's cheque. Can the bank just deduct the amount from my savings account? I have bought banker's cheque a few times but I paid with cash because those amounts were a few hundred ringgit only. But this time, I don't wanna pay by cash because it is a huge amount (>10k). I don't wanna bring that much cash around with me. Anyone can clarify? Thanks

Do we need to show the bank invoice or receipt so that they can make us a banker cheque??

Or just go to the counter and tell them i need a banker cheque pay to this company name. Thats all?

I do at CIMB, they never ask. only 1 question asked, the purpose of the payment because i forgot to write in form.

My wife also do at Affin, never ask for receipt too. There is no receipt anyway because want to pay booking for house.

CIMB now charge Rm5.15 + gst.

Went to the tiger bank. And they need an invoice or receipt from the company that i need to pay by cheque. I told them i wanna pay this firm for legal fees & down payment of my house.
They said, yes we need the receipt or invoice, as we need to answer to bnm when we issued a bankers cheque for that amount. Went to 2 tiger bank branches, and they all need receipt. So i asked from my lawyer and print the details lah.

I guess lain bank, lain procedure maybe. Last 2 weeks lah. Tiger bank charge 5.50+gst

I faced the same issue at Maybank back in January. And they were working extremely slow. Next time I'll just buy banker's cheque from Public Bank. Previously I always bought from Public Bank. No question asked and all was done in no time.

You need the cheque for cancellation. Without it, you need to wait for six months from the date of issued before it can be cancelled. If the cheque is missing, the bank will need a confirmation letter from the payee. That was how the bank explained to me when my banker's cheque went missing in transit via post.

Cheques issued by banks on customers' behalf are considered good for payment. That is why certain business transactions requires banker's cheque and not personal cheques which can be cancelled at anytime by the issuer.
