Payment Directives and Regulations
Many payments have been made faster since 2012 by the PSD.
The Payment Service Directive requires that all UK sterling domestic and euro payments within the European Economic Area (EEA) must reach the beneficiary account by close of business the next working day, referred to as D+1.
This has led to some changes in the way we process payments. Details of how these changes affect you are in the factsheets below: read the document that corresponds to where your account is held.
