Manage your personal payment limits

To provide you with extra protection against fraud and scams, you can manage your daily payment limits to suit your needs. The payment limits set the maximum amount you can pay across all services each working day.

The limits apply to payments made from your personal account to someone else and will not include bill payments.

You can increase or reduce the limits for payments made from your mobile app or online banking, with a daily maximum of £20,000. 

We recommend setting the payment limits to a level that suits your requirements.
