HSBC bank requires account holders to use deposit slips -- also known as paying-in slips -- when paying money in at a high street branch. The reason for this is so that HSBC knows exactly whose bank account -- and which bank account if you have more than one -- to deposit funds into. Your deposit slip states your name, account number and the amount of funds being deposited. Filling out your HSBC deposit slip is fast and simple.

Use a blue or black ink pen to fill out your deposit slip. Deposit slips filled out with pencil are not accepted by HSBC.

Get a deposit slip out of your cheque book. Deposit slips are typically attached to your cheque book behind all the cheques. If you are out of deposit slips, you can pick one up from the counter at your local branch.

Write the date, your full name, bank sort code and your account number on the designated lines. If you have your own deposit slips you only need to write the date because your name and account number are already printed on your deposit slips.

Enter the total amount of the cheques you are depositing in the applicable box. Enter the total amount of cash you are depositing on a second line. Add together the total amount of your deposit and write it on the "Total" line. Sign the back of your the deposit slip and hand your funds to an HSBC clerk for deposit.
