Nice one iam.....beating us all to it, and a tidy sum too.

Maybe an accompanying note just so they know where the Act is and what it expects them to do....I'm guessing this will be new to them....as it is to all of us....

Best of luck...

I have to say I am jumping with excitement with this.....and the fact that you guys have got something to take forward is just off my register....

Other thoughts for where this goes.....

Go to a garage, tell them you want to buy a car, send me a bill, i want to buy cash.....they oblige, we cash and exchange.

This is starting to sound like the pre-paid idea much discussed, but operating differently.

in the middle fo feeding kids at the moment so i will have to come back to this a bit later....

got a bit distracted last night with writing my notice.... yes i know that sounds very, very far fetched and so unlike me , but tiz true ...... does anyone know, "DO NOT MARK BELOW THIS LINE" on a payment slip , does tht also apply to the back , I think it may do but have come to a standstill when trying to find out , if so it may mean that a negotiable instrument cannot be endorsed

and


i have discovered, whilst some "payment slips" are remittence slips , or bills of exchange , i have got ones here that say "do not write below the line or fold this voucher. the fact that is t is referred to as a voucher is very interesting becuase it means it is not a bill of exchange any longer it is a receipt

Hi iam

That's the trap right there....the slip, voucher, remittance is not the Bill....its everything above the dotted line.....the slip is just a bank giro credit...that's the bit you use to pay the debt with the money you just paid in.

You can use an instrument called "allonge" to extend the area required to write indorsements....as long as it remains affixed to the Bill it is part of the Bill.

As far as indorsing the Bill (everything above the dotted line) you might just want to write "pay cash"...when they slide that to you...slide the completed slip and the money right back to them.

BTW....what was your Notice going to say ??
