How do I find my bank details by looking at my cheque?

Your bank details can be found in the string of numbers at the bottom of your cheque as seen below.

The Bank Code (Institution Number) is 3 digits, the Branch Code (Transit Number) is 5 digits, and the Account Number is usually 7 digits (sometimes more).

If your account number has fewer than 7 digits, it will not work; please reach out to your financial institution to obtain the correct number.
