CHAPS payments

CHAPS (Clearing House Automated Payment System) is a Telegraphic Transfer system which allows you to make same working day withdrawals and deposits for your savings accounts.

Paying in with CHAPS

CHAPS payments are guaranteed to be received and cleared by close of business on the same working day that the payer's bank or building society sends the funds, provided they are sent before the provider's cut off time. Please note, your provider may charge an admin fee for this service.

You should check with your provider as to when their cut-off time is for CHAPS.
