I need a void cheque for my workplace... I have a TD chequing account.

I was requested to give a void cheque from work agency...I received 4 of them when I signed up for a chequing account with TD bank.

Is there a fee to get more void cheques? Do I get them instantly or have to wait?

You could just take a standard cheque and write VOID on it if you have a pack of cheques.

There is no such thing as a pre-voided cheque. You have cheques, you write VOID on them, you have a VOID cheque.

TD will not print cheques on demand.

Your employer doesn't really need a void cheque to begin with. They just want to see the MICR encoded line at the bottom for bank number/transit/account. If you know which is which (this isn't rocket science) you can just give them that info or have TD print you up a direct deposit slip thing. I forget what they call it exactly.

You don't need a void cheque. Go in to the bank and tell them that your employer is asking for your banking information so that they can do direct deposit. TD will print you out a sheet and you can then give that sheet in to your employer and that's that.

Edit: Well played Drew. :D

Yup .. they just think you'll screw it up if you write the numbers down yourself.

Now if you had one of ING's new chequing accounts, you could just log in and print yourself a nice void cheque from the website. ;)

Photocopy the cheque and write VOID on it.

It pretty much is called a Direct Deposit Form ;) So ya just ask for that, no charge.

The bank can stamp the form to verify it was done by the branch.
