Bus/Financial / Payments transfer
English term or phrase: credit cheques etc.
as before in the context of payment transfers of an international bank:

Cheques (OPS & Applications):
Cheques is responsible for the cross-border cheque processing (CBC) & IT. The main CBC streams are debit cheques, credit cheques and cash letter cheques. The objective is to implement the most cost efficient method for processing the CBC's.

After all your helpful comments on the questions to credit cheques, debit cheques and cash letter cheques I now think, that the English structure of this might be somewhat weird. What do all of you think of the following solution:
Die wichtigsten CBC-Ströme sind die Gutschrift und Belastung von Schecks sowie das Scheck-Clearing.

It's the only thing which makes sense to me, but I think the English sentence structure implies something different...

Explanation:
I think it is a good solution.

I think the English is strangely phrased. I think credit cheques and debit cheques refers here quite simply to payments and recipts by cheques - this department is responsible for all cross-border cheque-processing.

I strongly suspect that "cash letter cheques" refers to "cash letters", which is a service for facilitating exactly this, offered by Deutsche Bank among others, see refs.
