Confirmation of payee

What Confirmation of Payee is

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.

Paying in details

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 your funds and providing you have given us the correct reference (your 10-digit Newbury Building Society account number) they will be credited to your mortgage or savings account. When you make a payment to us, the following bank details should be quoted:

Account Name: Newbury Building Society

Sort code: 62-28-74

Account number: 00000000

Reference: Your 10-digit Newbury Building Society mortgage or savings account number.

Account type: Business
