    Hi,
    Recently i received a cheque from the US (im from the UK) i went to bank it which i thought would be straight forward as a bank tends to have a currency conversion ready. (im guessing this is the case as people withdraw different currency before they go on holiday?)

    Anyway it wasnt straight forward they had to fill out a load of paper work and send the cheque off to another department to get the best conversion rate or something..

    Is this really how its done? I really thought it was going to be straight forward but i guess its going to be a grind i will have to bare! (unless there is a simple way im overseeing)

    In the future make sure that the check is drawn on a bank in your country and payable in your country's currency. Yes, there can be red tape and fees involved if you don't.

    May depend which bank you use, when I deposit dollar cheques in Natwest they process everything and just charge me a processing fee. Probably your method will result in receiving more money but the way I do it is less hassle.
