If you sent your cheque by post, interest will start to accrue on the third working day after the cheque's been process and your money's been deposited.
Electronic payments (Faster Payments, BACs, and CHAPS)
Deposits made by electronic payment will accrue interest from the day we receive the payment. However, there could be a cut-off point for processing the payment if it’s a weekend or bank holiday. For example, a payment made after the cut-off point on a Friday (typically 6:00pm) will normally be processed on the following Monday but might show in your account over the weekend. However, the payment will be shown and available in the account sooner.
