Hi

I have saved around £2k in cash through gifts, selling personal items like my PlayStation etc and I want to deposit this in to my bank account

Will I have any issues depositing this?

I'm thinking of putting it in every two weeks or so at a rate of £300

It isn't a huge amount

wouldnt have thought so .My bank imformed me it was only on trans-action over £10K but it could have changed in the meanwhile .

Shouldn't be an issue to deposit it all at once. They ask a few questions if you pay in £10k or more but even if they do you have a legitimate source for the money so don't worry.

The bank will ask no questions about your deposit even all at once. The tax man however at some stage may raise an eyebrow. Its not the amount as such its the irregularity and method that may cause the bank to alert money laundering people. For goodness sake dont just put it in for a temporary period to take it out and spend it.

The thing is I don't have receipts for selling second hand household goods on gumtree like I sold my phone for £300 to my mate.

£2k is nothing to worry about & well below any money laundering sum that might trigger an alert.

Would it be ok for me to take the £2k and use the deposit machine to put it in or will I have to go to the cashier window?

It doesnt matter. You will be fine.... Unless the money is covered in dye... ;)

You will be fine paying £2k in at once, paying £300 in separate occasions can be seen as more suspicious believe it or not.

Go to the window & get a receipt. Its safer.

i put a few grand into my account every so often and never had a problem. so two grand will be fine. if you do it regularly then the tax man may ask questions rather than the bank.

but as the first post states, it is normally above 10k that alerts attention but staff are required to alert the fraud office if they detect suspicious activities. i doubt if 2 grand will fall into that.

Use the counter staff, it will go in to your account same day whereas the machines take a day extra.

Nobody at the bank or HMRC will bat an eyelid at your transaction, dont worry in the slightest.

You'll be fine, I have paid in much larger sums, they are not going to refuse your cash but as someone else advised make sure you ask for a receipt though.

The deposit machines only take 50 notes at a time so best to go to a cashier anyway.

yes, this is true. the machines can't cope with large number of bills and it takes ages to do so as the others have said, just go to the cashier and it will be fine. two grand is nothing to worry about.

I paid in 9.5k in cash from a car sale, no questions asked.

I regularly transfer money from an overseas account and don't have an issue with deposits under £10k. If you read the independent it's £15k or thereabouts.
