The book examines the different types of banks and banking organizations operating in the United Kingdom, also making use of American, Canadian, New Zealand and Australian examples.
It provides analysis of the banker and customer relationship, explaining the different types of accounts available, the duties and the liabilities of banks, and the latest processes used in the clearance of cheques, plastic money and electronic money transfers.
