Organisations should use letter-headed stationary, and should give a clear indication of the amount needed by the beneficiary as well as the Organisation’s payment details (Name of the applying organisation’s bank account for cheque payee line).
Please remember to enclose the consent form provided on our website, signed or ticked by your client, so that we can handle your client’s personal data. this should detail when and how obtained. It would greatly help if you mark the front of your envelope “CONSENT” to show that this has been enclosed. If this is not possible you may as an alternative carefully anonymize all client data & mark your envelope “ANON”.
