The Faster Payments service was introduced in May 2008 and is another way of making payments in the UK

Separate from Bacs and CHAPS, the Faster Payments service significantly increases the speed of UK credit transfers from one account to another and enables consumers and organisations to send same-day payments at a considerably lower cost than CHAPS.

Banks' customers are currently able to initiate Faster Payment services via Internet and telephone banking. As consumers become more familiar with Faster Payments, organisations will face more pressure for their payments to be made in near real-time.

Whilst Faster Payments can be generally sent via online banking, since September 2009, corporate organisations have had the option of directly initiating Faster Payments Direct Corporate Access (DCA).

Faster Payments enables corporates to:

  • Improve customer service
  • Differentiate from the competition
  • Lower costs
  • Reduce risk
