General terms and conditions
- Cheques or debits transacted at your CIBC Banking Centre may not be included with the account statement.
- Cheques deposited will be credited subject to final payment. We undertake to exercise reasonable diligence to collect cheques, but are not responsible for any delay, notice or failure to collect.
- You may make deposits at any CIBC Banking Centre which accepts over-the-counter business deposits (each a “depository location”). All deposits made at a depository location will be credited to one or more of your accounts (each a “designated account”). Your branch of account for any deposits made at a depository location will continue to be the CIBC Banking Centre which maintains the designated account to be credited with your deposits. Each deposit made at a depository location, through a teller processing for same day value, will be processed for credit to the related designated account as of the same business day. Deposits made through a teller not processed for same day value will be processed for credit as of the next business day. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays that CIBC is closed are not business days for this purpose. Cash withdrawals are not permitted and cheques cannot be cashed or certified at depository locations other than your branch of account. You authorize CIBC to debit your designated account for any returned item pertaining to deposits previously processed.
- In most cases, deposits, withdrawals and other transactions done at a CIBC Banking Centre or CIBC ATM after 6:00 p.m. local time, and any telephone banking and online banking transactions done after 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time will be processed the next business day.
- Monthly account, transaction and items deposited fees are calculated for the calendar month up to and including the final business day of the month. Such fees are dated the final calendar day of the month but are not posted until the second business day in the following month.

CIBC and other financial institutions may reject any cheque or other instrument that does not comply in all respects with all applicable bylaws, regulations, rules and standards of CIBC and the Canadian Payments Association.
