The following table details the cut-off times in CET by currency. This is the time by which a payment needs to be successfully initiated for same-day execution.

If initiated before cut-off, funds will be debited from your account with same day value. Same-day execution may not be met for payments held up for any compliance, lack of funds or other internal policy reasons.

Please speak to your Relationship Manager to discuss cut-offs for payments submitted by bulk file upload or via API.

Incoming and internal payment processing stops at 17:45 CET.
