Priority

Your preference for how you want us to process your international payment:

  • Urgent - For payments in EUR to most European countries the beneficiary bank will normally receive the payment the same day your account is debited. Other Urgent payments should normally arrive within two working days.
  • Standard - For payments in EUR to another country in the Single European Payment Area (SEPA), the beneficiary bank will normally receive the payment the next working day, provided you: use only international bank account numbers (IBANs) for account numbers and bank identifier codes (BICs) for banks, leave charges as Shared (i.e. our charges paid by the remitter, and foreign bank charges paid by the beneficiary) and you do not specify an intermediary bank or SWIFT code word. Other Standard payments should normally arrive within four working days.
