We can refuse to make an electronic payment in some situations:

  • You don't have enough money in the account you're paying from to make the payment, or that money is uncleared funds
  • The payment amount is over any transaction limit for that account
  • A technical failure stops us processing the payment. This could be in our systems or in the systems used by the banking industry
  • The information you've given us isn't complete or correct
  • We believe the payment involves some form of fraud, money laundering, or other criminal conduct by you, an authorised signatory, or someone else
  • We've received a Court order that stops us processing the payment
