    Tesco Bank - limit on amount of BACs Transfer? 15th Jun 17 at 7:45 AM
    Is there a limit on the amount that can be transferred via BACs from a Tesco c/a? The amount I'm thinking of is about 15K.

    Been looking at Tesco Bank's Help pages but can't find what I am looking for.

    Grateful for any advice/help. Thanks.

    You'll need to call them to transfer 15k. The online limit to external accounts is 10k

    "Faster Payments using Online Banking or the mobile banking app - 10,000 per day.

    Telephone Banking - Up to your available balance limit".

    Not very good is it. Other banks I've used (Nationwide & Santander) also have a transaction limit but allow multiple transactions the same day.

    First up (and as pointed out indirectly by other posters) except in limited circumstances retail banking customers have not been able to do BACS payments for over 5 year now, all payments will use the Faster Payments System (or CHAPS if you're willing to pay for it). A hard daily limit of 10K is pretty poor, so it looks like you have 3 options:

    Telephone banking
    Transfers over 2 days
    Payment by CHAPS (if Tesco offer it)

    Apologies - by BACS I meant Faster Payments.

    Thanks for all your answers - looks like we will now be using payments from 2-3 bank accounts to make our payment.

    Yes there is a limit I had issues transferring over 1000. However once I rang them it was fine.
