Payment limits

There are daily limits to the amount of money you can send from your account.

  • The limit is for each account and resets at 11:59pm each day.
  • You can see what's left of your daily limit when you make a payment in our app or with Internet Banking.
  • Some payments don't count towards the limit. These are transfers between your own Bank of Scotland current and savings accounts, cheques, Direct Debits, and CHAPS payments.
