MY BANK AND I

Module 7

THE BANK AS AN AGENT

  1. The bank as an agent between yourself and your clients (the people whom you must pay for their services or products):

A bank makes it possible for two persons/businesses to do business in other ways than by transferring cash/money. There are various methods in which this can be done. The following are a few of these:

  • With the help of a bank slip such as the one shown below, you can deposit money into your client’s account. If you know your client’s bank number you can do such a transaction.

  • You can also pay for services or products with the help of a cheque linked to your cheque account. You may write out a cash cheque or you can make the cheque out in the name of the receiver. If Mr De Klerk bought new tyres to the value of R800,00 from Y-Tyres, the cheque that is written out to pay for the tyres would look like the following example:

Talk to your educator and parents about what it means to cross a cheque. Why is it important to cross a cheque ?

Now use these blank cheques to pay the following providers for services or products:

Star Supermarket for groceries to the value of R245,69;

Prima Park Primary School for school fees: R375,00.

[LO 3.3]

  1. We can also get bankcards or credit cards with which we can transfer money from one person or company to another.

The claimant/service provider has a special machine that is able to read the magnetic strip on the card and register the transaction. The balance on the account of the person who is paying is automatically reduced by the relevant amount and the claimant’s or service provider’s account is increased by the same amount.

Example: If you have R500, 00 in your account and you purchase goods to the value of R120, 00 with your credit card, the following calculation will be done to provide your new balance:

R500,00 - R120,00 = R380,00
