Faster Payments from your account
Faster Payments is a payment service which allows most customers of UK banks to be able to make and receive sterling payments within the UK in a matter of hours, and often in minutes.
Payments made through Telephone Banking and any Internet Banking payments which are over the limit for same-day, will be processed overnight and will reach the recipient’s bank the business day after the payment instruction was received by us.
Details of same-day payment limits within Internet Banking will be available to you at the time you make the transaction.
Business Internet Banking
We've made some changes to the Business Internet Banking Service so that you can take advantage of the new Faster Payments Service. If you'd like more information, please visit our changes in services page.
Customers can request Immediate and Future Dated Faster Payments as part of the standard Corporate Online banking service.
Personal account access
For those Personal accounts where you can currently make payments via Business Internet Banking to organisations outside of Halifax or Bank of Scotland, the Faster Payments Service will be available. For those accounts where you can only view or transfer funds to another account within your access, the Faster Payment facility will only be available through the Personal Online Service provided the account is registered for these services.
Personal Banking customers can find further details of this new service here.
