Although you won't believe this it is actually true. You can deposit a cheque into your account from your computer at home. You scan it in to the computer, send the jpg file to the bank and they credit it to your account. If you go to your bank on line and press lots and lots of buttons you will eventually be able to follow their procedure.

Only with a few banks so far, Natwest aren't happy with the system and haven't implemented it.

Post Office allow paying in cheques for a number of banks, they keep envelopes behind the counter. Many banks do paying in using your smart phone.

BAD NEWS

I have a draw down pension, and after a chat with my financial adviser he informs me that my income will decrease by 6% on my minimum risk investments and up to 10% for those who have medium risk investments.

Hopefully both will return over the coming months.

Keep safe and smiling.

Terry

Is that all? Mine has dropped 18%. I could have bought (or to be precise afforded the balance for) a new motorhome with what it has dropped by. Still, they all say don't cash it in, it is a long term investment. But I would love to know what the financial advisers are doing themselves. Fortunately we don't as yet need the cash to live on so we can leave it and hope it recovers. Unfortunately with the demise of thousands of businesses and the inevitable tax hikes after it is all over, I don't see it recovering for at least ten years, even if we don't get any more disasters.
Yes I’m glad I stuck to low risk investments and not tried my luck at medium and high risks ones in my portfolio.

My step daughter has a senior position with my financial advisors and her advice is that 0the best strategy is where possible don’t cash them in.

It will recover, but as others have said it will take time.

Thanks Terry, it is good to hear that from the step father of the horse's mouth, if you will please pardon the expression.

Seems HSBC only allow with mobile app, which is beyond me and my old Nokia phone.

Laptop access I can handle, mobile helpless, smart phone is only used to take pictures hugegrins hugegrins

Does anyone know if Barclays is the same, as they have a branch just down the town unlike HSBC who went ages ago.

Taking the van off SORN tomorrow, with spending winter in NZ followed by the lockdown, it's not been on the road since last October!
No plans to go anywhere in June, but with having work done on the house, we need the van's hardstanding for cement mixer and gravel etc. So I'll be going on a 30 mile circuitous route to get the 5 miles to a friend's farm where it will remain for the next few weeks. By then we may be allowed to go further afield. I know we could go anywhere in England right now, but I don't see the point until we can spend the night away.

I'll tax mine tomorrow. We can only travel 5 miles but with plans to tour in July if we are allowed, I don't want to wait until then in case something needs doing.
If all is well we'll use it every week for shopping (going the long way round so it gets up to temperature).

Only in Wales I think Richard, which is where Paul lives. My 5 miles is because that's how far the farm is I'm going to. Just doing it the long way to get the van up to temperature.

Yes Wales limited to 5 miles from home. I believe Scotland and N.Ireland are the same.

Good afternoon Mr Robinson,
 
Thank you for your email, we hope you are well.
 
If you were to SORN the vehicle, insurance cover will still remain in place as normal. There will just be no cover for road use until the vehicle is put back on the road.
 
 
Kind Regards

If I were to take this literally it states that I only have to put the vehicle on the road, not purchase a road fund license.

Insurance companies often require that a vehicle is taxed and has a valid MoT certificate when you take out the policy. It must also be maintained in accordance with manufacturer recommendations throughout the life of the policy and in a roadworthy condition when being used.

Denying liability in the case of an accident is normally limited to comprehensive clauses unless it can absolutely shown that a failure to meet requirement is deliberate and knowingly done. The Tax status has no relevance on the safety of the vehicle, they would have difficulty denying liability.

eaylifer

I don’t really understand your point, I fully understand that I’m not able to drive my motorhome on a public road as my insurance would not be valid as the motorhome carries no road tax.

I wanted confirmation that the motorhome would be insured while stored on my property and off any public road.
