Minimum charge per cash deposit

Dear Alpha Security client

Minimum charge per cash deposit

Our previous communication to clients who pay cash at the office refers (this is available on our website at It appears that the bank views cash as a high risk commodity? We have included a transcript of a letter that we have received from our bank, ABSA with regards to cash deposits.

Dear Client

At Absa, we continuously strive to ensure our products, services and solutions remain competitive in
order to meet your business’ unique requirements. To do this, we have to continuously revise our cost and product range.
We would like to give you advance notice that, as part of our annual pricing review in January 2017,
we will be implementing a minimum cash deposit fee of R30,00 per deposit for all cash deposits at
Absa branches. This arrangement will apply to all customers regardless of their current cash pricing
arrangement that make use of our branches to either collect funds from third parties or make cash
We realise that this impending change may have a substantial impact on how you collect from your
customers and therefore trust that this advance notice will afford you the opportunity to pro-actively
update your 2017 pricing to account for the additional cost. Alternatively, you may like to consider the
option of moving your customers to alternative channels such as debit orders or ATM deposits to
minimise the impact on your cost line.
If you wish to discuss alternative collection products or channels as part of the solutions we can offer
you, please contact your Relationship Executive or Cash Sales Specialist for assistance.
Thank you once again for choosing Absa as your banking partner.

Head: Cash and Cheque products

Unfortunately the business can no longer “absorb” these additional costs, we wish advise all those clients who pay by cash to either go on our bank debit order system or pay with an EFT to avoid an additional “cash levy” to be added to their account.
Those clients who continue to pay by cash will be levied the minimum cash deposit levy of R 30.00 additional to their monthly rental. Please note that this is a minimum and the amount is dependent on the value of cash being deposited.
Kind regards
