Remote Deposit is a convenient way to electronically deposit cheques, 24/7, from your place of business, anywhere in Canada or the U.S. using ScotiaConnect® Digital Banking service and a certified scanner. Your cheque deposit history is retained online for 180 days and you have access to detailed deposit reporting for recordkeeping purposes. You can deposit multiple CAD or USD cheques into your Canadian-domiciled business accounts and the system automatically detects potential duplicate deposits, thereby reducing your risk of fraud.
