25 March 2016 and 28 March 2016 (Good Friday and Easter Monday) are bank holidays in most EU countries.

As a result, the euro payments clearing and settlement system will be closed and payments won’t be processed on these dates.

Please ensure your payments are submitted early to avoid any potential delays.

We recommend that you submit payments such as salaries or bill payments on Wednesday 23 March for value on Thursday 24 March.

Any payments initiated before 18.00 on Thursday 24 March will be with the recipient banks on Tuesday 29 March.

Any payments initiated after 18.00 on Thursday 24 March will not be credited in the recipient banks until Wednesday 30 March.
