Confirmation of payee


Confirmation of Payee (CoP) is a service that checks the sort code and account number against the name of the organisation/or person you are electronically sending money to. This applies for one-off payments and standing orders.  Financial organisations are seeking to prevent fraud and payments being sent to the wrong account, keeping your money and accounts safe.

All of the large banking groups have now implemented Confirmation of Payee.  It will not affect you making payments from Newbury Building Society to your nominated bank account, but it will impact on making electronic payments to your Newbury Building Society savings or mortgage account if your bank account provider has implemented the service.


Confirmation of Payee will apply if you are electronically transferring funds into your Newbury Building Society savings or mortgage account from an account held with a bank that offers the service. 

The Society uses NatWest bank to receive funds and providing the customer has given us the correct reference (their 10-digit Newbury Building Society account number) the funds will be credited to their mortgage or savings account. Please note, funds can take up to one working day to show in your Newbury Building Society account.
