Dear Langeberg Municipality Consumers, during the last decade, cheque usage has seen an annual decrease of 30% as South African consumers have shifted towards more convenient payment options.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the physical contact required to issue, collect and process cheques have made it a less desirable method of payment for consumers and businesses alike, causing the banking industry to discontinue the issuing of cheques from 31 December 2020.
Consequently, the Langeberg Municipality will no longer accept cheques as a method of payment from Wednesday, 23 December 2020.
We rely on your cooperation,
DIRECTOR FINANCIAL SERVICE (CFO)
