Realise one can do this at the bank (6) = ENCASH

Double definition.

Ugly rumour may oust leader from firm (6) = CANARD

may = CAN, oust leader = remove first letter, firm = HARD

Last in was this nice bit of redirection which had me scrabbling to remember Little Women characters until I got the word from the checking letters:

Having retired, little woman retrospectively retains value (8) = EMERITUS

little = short form, woman = SUSAN, little woman = SUE, retrospectively = reverse, retains = containment, value = MERIT

Favourite clue:

Rebel Frenchman aged badly (8) = RENEGADE

Frenchman = RENE, badly = anagram (of aged)
