How long does a Faster Payment take?

Sending money within the UK via Faster Payments usually takes less than two hours to clear in the recipient's bank account. Regardless of whether you are sending or receiving a faster payment, the money will clear by the end of the following business day at the latest.

However, in some circumstances they can take longer than this. A Faster Payment will always be credited by the end of the following business day. This applies to Faster Payments made both in and out of your account to other providers that are members of the Faster Payments scheme.

You can make Faster Payments 24/7, 365 days a year.
