*Overseas Cheque Collections:
- The collection may take 1 - 5 weeks, as cheques are sent overseas and responses back to BNZ are dependent on each bank’s own processing times. We cannot control the process.
- BNZ charges apply for processing an item on overseas cheque collection, plus the courier charges.
- The overseas bank will also deduct their own processing fee (unknown amount) from the proceeds.
- Overseas banks may decline a cheque for collection if it is under NZD250.00, as the fees may cut into the returning funds.
