As Adam says, maybe not a good idea to post bank account details to web. In my previous job, I got targetted by Nigerian fraudesters, they're quite clever in how they try to get money out of your account once they have the details. On the other hand, I haven't had a cheque book for ten years, I don't think banks in Europe even issue them anymore. Recently in the Netherlands, I paid 20Euro bank charges to raise a 25Euro cheque! So I'd prefer bank transfer, but let's discuss tonight how best to arrange it.
