Barclays Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to transfer money to another UK account?

How long do payments take to be made?

Payments can take different times to be processed, depending on what sort of account they're going to.

For payments to other Barclays accounts

Your money will normally arrive immediately.

For payments to Barclaycard

Payments normally arrive on the same day but will not show up on your statement until the next working day.

For payments to another bank

Payments to other banks normally arrive on the same day. But some banks/building societies, card companies and utility companies may take longer to credit their customers' accounts.

These are expected processing times only. We can't guarantee that all payments will be made to these timelines. If you want to guarantee the same-day transfer of money to another bank account, you can use the CHAPs system. There is a fee of £25 for Personal Banking customers.

Find out more about BACS and CHAPS payments.

In Online Banking, payments may on occasion be delayed to allow us to carry out some extra checks to help us protect your account from fraud.
