How you can move money

When you pay online, you can choose how you pay. A Faster Payment usually sends money right away, but it can take up to two hours. Standing Orders let you set up a repeat payment. Direct Debits let a company request money from your account.

When you pay a UK account online, we’ll use the Faster Payments Service. There is a daily limit of £25,000. Faster Payments can be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and sent immediately or set up for the future.

If you want to send more, visit any UK branch with valid identification and staff can help you send up to £100,000 using the Faster Payment Service. If you need to send more than £100,000 on the same day, you can through CHAPS (CHAPS costs £25 per payment). Or, you can write a cheque to make a payment.

You can also transfer money between your Halifax accounts instantly, Pay a Contact, pay in a cheque using the app and buy Travel Money online.
