Faster Payments

Find out how the UK benefits from faster payments

Businesses and Government

Businesses are taking advantage of the almost instantaneous functionality and near universal reach of the service for payments to individuals such as wages to agency workers. The UK Government are also making emergency benefit payments to individuals in this way.


Consumers are the main users of the Faster Payments Service, accounting for almost 60% of the payments made last year.

Broader participation and wider adoption

The maturity of real-time payments in the UK is encouraging new customer propositions from innovative suppliers such as Barclay’s Pingit and Zapp, a person-to-business and person-to-business and merchant service.
