Foreign Currency Cash Letters
Checks denominated in foreign currencies or drawn on a foreign bank in the same currency requires a cash letter solution for processing. The exceptions are US Dollar checks drawn on Canadian, British and German banks which can be processed as a cash letter item.
Foreign Currency Collection Items
An alternative solution to our Foreign Currency Cash Letters is to send the item on collection. Cambridge sends the item directly to the bank the check is drawn upon and proceeds once the item has cleared as good funds in our local bank account. Collection times vary between countries but typically take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks to clear.
