    Bank transfer faster between different banks now?

    Just transferred some money to someone with a Lloyds TSB account from my HSBC account and it said..

    "Your payment has been sent and will usually be credited to the beneficiary's account within 2 hours. (H48) "

    News to me, usually it takes a few days doesn't it?

    I was reading something about it the other day. A few banks are participating on quicker transfers between accounts so count yourself lucky! It does usually take up to 3 working days to clear.

    Halifax too now... excellent news

    yep hsbc 2 hours!

    Nice, I've never transferred money from NWOLB - so I don't know how to do it!

    the sort code checker site shows which bank accounts accept faster payments. can payments be made from that particular account faster aswell?
