Just got the following from TSB (who incidentally are not my main bank):
From 26 May, we’ll be processing payments 7 days a week!
This means payments will be processed on weekends and public holidays, rather than just on business days as they are now.
This is an industry-wide change to help make payments easier and gives you more flexibility to pay other people, or be paid, any day you choose.
What you need to know from 26 May
Any payments set up to go out late on a Friday or over the weekend will go out on the same day.
You can change most of your automatic payments through Online Banking.
Payments may still be delayed by a couple of hours before they go through.
High value transactions, such as house settlements, will still be processed on business days, as well as international and credit card payments.
What you need to do
It's a good time to look at any scheduled payments you have set up, such as automatic payments and direct debits, to ensure that you'll have sufficient funds available on the day the payment is scheduled to go out.
If you run a business, it’s also worth reviewing your payments along with your current payment processes.
