How long does a cheque take to clear?

Cheques can take 3-5 business days to clear when deposited into an account. You can speed up this process by requesting a special answer on the deposited cheque(s) upon presentation.

There is a special answer fee of $25 which can be waived if you are seeking to deposit an ANZ cheque into your ANZ everyday or savings account.
