I'd try to find another bank that's more friendly to small businesses..

In our shop we only accept cash, cheques or Bacs    payments.  We've enquired about machines before and the bank has told us we don't have a big enough turnover to make it 'WORTH THEIR WHILE' We never have any problems with customers paying in cash.

Things are changing though - when I went to Norway 15 years ago I got some currency and my Norwegian pal laughed when I told him. I found out why: the taxi from the airport took a card, the market stall took a card, the pub took a card. They looked at cash as if it was something from history! Mind you, the taxi was 80 and a couple of rounds in the pub wasn't much less.. All the traders had card machines linked to their mobile phones.
Incidentally there are a number of merchant service providers who can handle card transactions for you, not just your bank. Even PayPal do something for card transactions linked to your mobile phone. I really must get a smart phone... :)

We use a local Waitrose, which has a Post Office counter.

I had to cash a small cheque recently, and apart from a bit of a palaver with C19 and not touching anything (or anyone), It went through with no charge, and appeared on our statement a day or so later described as 'Night Safe'.

Saved me a trip to Cranbrook too...

(And I bought some beer while I was up there, so I was well pleased)!

They closed the branch of the bank were with, we used to have a business account but I dont recall having to pay to deposit a cheque. I digress, now if I want to pay in a cheque I do so online by taking a photo via their app, front & back & within a couple of days receive a text to say its been approved & if the originators bank approves it tge money will be in my account in a few days. I deposited one in this manor on Saturday evening, & got the text yesterday . Far easier than going to the bank.
Id check out other banks & types of accounts does it need to be a business account?
