Payments via cheque
The South African Reserve Bank has endorsed the reduction of the cheque item limit from R5 million to R500,000.00; as proposed by the Payments Association of South Africa, with effect from 16 July 2012. This is a risk reduction measure to combat the excessive fraud committed in the use of cheques, whether personal or bank guaranteed.
For the Retail Savings Bond investor this means that any payment in excess of R500,000.00 should be paid by way of EFT (electronic funds transfer) or through several cheques. The South African Post Office and Pick ‘n Pay stores will no longer be able to accept any single cheque in excess of R500,000.00 as means of payment.
The National Treasury operates bank accounts with the Four Major Banks* to enable easy and safe access to EFT payments; the respective bank account details are available on request.
*The four major banks are: Standard Bank, First National Bank, Nedbank and ABSA Bank.
You can purchase your RSA Retail Savings Bonds from National Treasury (012 315 5888), Post Office or at any Pick ‘n Pay store country wide.
