What is a standing order?

A standing order is a regular, fixed-amount payment from your account to another UK bank account.

When you set one up, you can decide how often you would like the recurring payment to come out of your account — it could be weekly, fortnightly, four-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly. You can also choose whether you want the recurring payment to continue until a certain date, or if you’d rather it had no end date.

A standing order payment will reach the recipient on the due date, as long as it's a business day.

Who you can pay

With a standing order, you can pay:

  • A new or existing recipient
  • A regular amount into a savings account.
