Are all payments sent by Faster Payments Service?
All online payments are made through Faster Payments provided the payment amount is within the FPS limits. The money will reach the recipient's account usually within 2 hours but can sometimes take up to close of business the next working day from the date the payment is sent. The bank account that you are sending the money to will need to be able to accept Faster Payments.Back to top

Why transfer money by CHAPS?
If you need to send money in pounds from your Lloyds Bank personal current account to another UK account, you can ask in branch to make a payment by CHAPS. To send money by CHAPS you’ll need the bank account name, number and sort code of the recipient. You may wish to consider whether other methods of sending the payment, which do not incur a charge may be available – such as an internal transfer or a faster payment. Find out more information about these payment types and the restrictions which apply to them or ask in branch.Back to top
When will it arrive?
CHAPS processed externally through the Bank of England CHAPS settlement system – payments are guaranteed to arrive at the recipient bank on the same day if we receive your instruction before 4.25pm on a working day and the recipient bank account details are correct.
CHAPS processed internally by Lloyds Banking Group – we will aim for these to arrive on the same day, if we receive your instruction before 4.25pm on a working day and the recipient bank account details are correct, but this isn’t guaranteed.
CHAPS instructions received after 4.25pm on a working day are treated as received on the next working day.Back to top
