CHAPS is a same-day system for payments made within the UK in sterling.
Clearing House Automated Payment System (CHAPS) payments are electronic bank-to-bank same-day payments, and sent as SWIFT messages.
Payments via CHAPS are processed using a sort code and an account number. Payments that are sent on a business day will be credited to the customer’s account on the same day. The business day is defined as being from 06.00 to 16.20, Monday to Friday excluding UK Bank Holidays.
Faster Payments Service (FPS) is one of three main payment schemes in the United Kingdom. (aside from BACS and CHAPS)
The FPS allows payments to be sent at a time determined by the payer, either immediately or at a later date.
Payment transactions via FPS are processed on sort code and account number and have a maximum value limit set.
FPS between direct participants are usually executed and made available to the payee’s account within two hours.
FPS payments can be processed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week but inter-bank settlement only occurs three times a day on Mondays to Fridays, excluding bank holidays
