Faster payments

Where instruction is received Faster Payments can be made from Skipton accounts to a nominated bank account. The nominated account must be a UK bank or building society account in your own name and the receiving bank or building society must be a member of the Faster Payment scheme.

Paying in with Faster Payments

Skipton is part of the Faster Payments network which means payments from most UK banks will be applied to your account within 2 hours of the payment being sent, regardless of the day or time they have arrived.

For Faster Payments sent on a weekend, bank holiday or after the evening cut-off (typically 6:00 pm) we won’t receive the funds until the next working day. This means that, even though the money might show in your Skipton account, it will not start to earn interest until the next working day.

You should check with your provider what their cut-off time is for sending Faster Payments.
