Time and Date Stamp

 

Each time you log in to Online Banking we will display the details of your last log in.

 

This is an additional security measure that we have taken to ensure that you know if someone has fraudulently accessed your accounts online.

 

The details shown are the date and time on which you last accessed the service. It is important that you check your last log in every time you log in. It will be displayed in the top navigation bar as indicated below.

 

If you are suspicious of the last log in shown and do not recall logging in to Online Banking on that date, please call our Phoneline Banking service on 0345 793 0000, log in and choose option 0 to speak to a Customer Service Adviser.

Balances FAQs

  • What is my 'Balance'?

    The account balances you get on Online, Mobile and Phoneline Banking are shown in real time (in other words, they are up to date at the time you check your balance) with the exception of the accounts below.


    Your Visa card, MasterCard and Asset Finance Account balances are updated up to close of business on the previous banking day.


    The balance does not contain uncleared amounts (amounts that have been paid into your account but are not yet available to withdraw, for example a cheque).

  • What does 'Available Funds' mean?

    ‘Available Funds’ is the amount you can transfer or withdraw from your account.


    If you have an agreed overdraft limit with us, your ‘Available Funds’ is the balance of your account plus the amount of your overdraft. The amount of your overdraft limit will also appear underneath your ‘Available Funds’.

  • Can I transfer or withdraw all of my ‘Available Funds’ using Online, Mobile and Phoneline Banking?

    The amount you can transfer or withdraw using Online, Mobile and Phoneline Banking is subject to transaction limits. Details of our transaction limits are available here.

     

    Depending on the type of account you have, you may have to pay transactions fees for some transfers or withdrawals on Online, Mobile and Phoneline Banking. Details of these charges are in our price list, which is available in branch or on our website here.

  • What are ‘Pending Transactions’?

    The ‘Pending Transactions’ screen displays Visa debit card transactions which you have made but have not yet been debited from your account.

     

    Most Visa debit card transactions are debited within several days, however, the timeline can be different for each transaction depending on how the retailer/merchant processes it. As a result, there may be some Visa debit card transactions which you have made that are not displayed on this screen.

     

    Simply call us 24 hours a day, on 028 9024 1822 or +44 28 9024 1822 (from outside the UK). We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have about Visa debit cards.

Direct debits FAQs

You can now view your direct debits online and cancel those that are no longer required.

  • What is a direct debit?

    A direct debit is an agreement between you and the organisation you are paying, which allows them to take money out of your account at regular intervals. The organisation will set this up and can alter the amount paid, as long as you have been given advance notice of the collection amounts and dates. There is an industry guarantee on Direct Debits ‘The Direct Debit Guarantee’.
