Since January 2014, businesses, small clubs and societies that authorise their payments using more than one signatory have had greater payment choices. Nominated signatories have been able to authorise payments using either online banking or, in some cases, phone banking facilities. 

This facility, introduced after the industry committed to providing electronic alternatives to dual signatory cheques offers an additional way for businesses, charities and other organisations that have these cheque books on their account to make payments.
