6. Digital deposit

A deposit made to your CAD or USD account by scanning a cheque (item), with the help of a scanner, and transmitting the image through the Digital Deposit option in Internet Banking Solutions for Businesses, in accordance with Payments Canada regulations for payment clearing and settlement. The scanned cheque image has the same official legal status as the original cheque.

Deposited items must be issued in Canadian or US dollars and drawn on a Canadian or American financial institution. Only the following original items can be deposited with the service:

  • Cheques
  • Certified cheques (not perforated)
  • Bank drafts and money orders
  • Traveller's cheques (unless issued by Thomas Cook).

The virtual endorsement generated by the system is in lieu of a physical bank endorsement and the customer endorsement is not required for an item deposited digitally.

You must securely store each original item for 15 days following the deposit date, and then destroy it. After destruction, the original item must no longer be accessible.

It is totally safe to receive bank statements and cheque image remittances online. We've put safeguards in place to ensure the confidentiality and security of your information while using Internet Banking Solutions for Businesses. These include:

  • A 128‑bit encryption system;
  • Enhanced security measures to block access to your accounts while logged in from an unrecognized device;
  • An additional security feature that makes it impossible to access your accounts without the SecurID passkey (optional).

You deposit cheques online 24/7. For sameday electronic deposits, cheques must be deposited on the business day before 9 p.m. (ET).

To deposit an item that cannot be deposited using the service, you must go to a branch or ABM.

There is a limit to the amount that can be deposited remotely based on your business profile. Certain restrictions apply.

You must keep and secure the originals of all deposited items in a safe place that can only be accessed by your staff members.

Just like cheques deposited at a branch or via an ABM, cheques deposited remotely are subject to the deposit/withdrawal limits applicable to your account. To change your deposit/withdrawal limit, please contact your account manager. The terms and conditions of access to funds are set out in our Access to Funds Policy and apply to digital deposits.

You can purchase a scanner from our recommended supplier or a supplier of your choice.

  1. Install the scanner driver. Paystation can provide technical support as needed.
  2. Connect the USB cord (once installation is complete).
  3. The indicator light will be red, which means the scanner is in sleep mode.
  4. Consult the Internet Banking Solutions for Businesses Help Centre for more details.

  1. Remove any staples or paperclips and make sure that the corners are not folded, which can cause scanning problems.
  2. Organize the deposit items and ensure the edges are lined up and facing the same way. Sort them by size to prevent any errors.
  3. Place the cheques in the scanner and align them with the mark on the scanner. The indicator light will turn orange and the cheques will be fed automatically into the scanner.

Yes. You should clean the scanner according to the manufacturer’s instructions to maintain the quality of scanned images.

7. National Bank app

The mobile app is free! However, to use it, you need to sign up for our Internet Banking Solutions, which are included in all Business packages. For more information, consult the Banking Services for Businesses Fee Guide.

When first accessing the Deposit option in the mobile app, a company administrator must give consent by accepting the terms and conditions to have access to the mobile deposit option.

Once the terms and conditions have been accepted, any other administrator already in the company profile will have access to the mobile deposit option.

To make a deposit:

  • Open the National Bank app
  • Click Deposit at the bottom of the screen
  • Enter the amount on the cheque, then click Next
  • Take a picture of both sides of the cheque, then click Next
  • The photo will be taken automatically thanks to technology designed to recognize the image of a cheque
  • Select the account you want to deposit the amount into, then click Next
  • Verify the deposit information, and click on Validate to confirm the deposit

A confirmation message will then be displayed on the screen, as well as how long you need to keep the original cheque.

You can make deposits into the same transaction accounts you already use with our Internet Banking Solutions, except for joint accounts.

By using the app, you can deposit cheques, certified cheques, money orders, and bank drafts as well as travellers cheques (other than Thomas Cook). However, the items must be in CAD and drawn on a Canadian financial institution. For cheques in USD, you can use the app’s scanner or go to a branch. To deposit cheques in foreign currencies other than USD, we invite you to deposit them at a branch.

Here are some possible reasons:

  1. You’re using the mobile website. If so, download the National Bank app from the App Store or Google Play.
  2. You haven’t consented to the terms and conditions to allow cheque deposit on your mobile device.
  3. You only have an account with co-holders.
  4. You don’t have a Canadian currency account.

You can deposit cheques until 9 p.m. (ET) on business days and they’ll be processed the same day. Cheques deposited after that time will be processed during the next business day. Note that a deposit is always made in real‑time. It’s the deposit date that changes according to the cut‑off time.

Just like cheques deposited at a branch or via an ABM, cheques deposited remotely are generally subject to thedeposit/withdrawal limits applicable to your account. The terms and conditions of access to funds and the peculiarities of digital deposits are set out in our Access to Funds Policy. To change your deposit/withdrawal limit, please contact your advisor.

The app allows you to deposit one cheque at a time (the deposit process must be redone for each cheque) and up to a limit of $400,000 per day. If you exceed this amount, you’ll still be able to make other deposits at an ABM or at a branch.

We want to make sure that your deposit amount has been transferred into your account and that all the control procudeures have been completed before you get rid of the original cheque. That's why the deposit confirmation indicates a date so you know exactly how long you need to keep the cheque. This helps us make sure we can assist you efficiently and give you access to your deposit amount as quickly as possible. We recommend that you keep the cheque in a secure location to limit the risk of copying. Ensure that the items are safely destroyed (shredded) afterwards.

The app lets you sign payments of the same and different currency fund transfers, Interac ®, salary deposits, and government remittances (Quebec and Canadian governments). The app also allows the signing of transactions that require one or two signatories.

The transactions you can sign are at the top of the screen when you sign in and you can access them anytime from the Transactions to sign section. Only transactions that you can sign on the app will be displayed, unlike on your web browser where all transactions will be displayed.

If the Sign button is greyed out, it’s probably because you haven’t accepted the terms and conditions displayed onscreen. Make sure you’ve clicked the I accept button. This will make the Sign button green and allow you to sign the transaction.

All accounts that you have access to on the web platform are also available on the app.

Go to the bar at the top of the My Accounts screen to select the company for which you want to make a transaction. Changing the subsidiary can be done only from this screen and from the Transactions to sign screen. Use the search field under the company name to search for the company by name or number.

If you want to deposit a cheque, a message will be displayed to confirm the company you want the cheque deposited to. Before making any transactions, make sure that the company displayed at the top of the screen is the one you want.

Go to the Transactions to sign section in the left menu. You’ll see all the primary business transactions to sign. If transactions can be signed in one or more subsidiaries, a message will be displayed on the screen. Then, select the subsidiaries in the top search bar and sign the transactions pending a signature.
