myaccounts FAQ - Paying money in

The opening deposit into your savings account must be received from an account in your name. 

If you are a new or existing customer opening a new account, you can pay into your account once the myaccounts team have confirmed by secure message that your account has been successfully opened. 

If you are an existing customer, you can pay into your existing accounts at any time.

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.

Banks/building societies have their own limits for electronic money transfers, depending on the limits will depend on which details will need to be used.

Higher limits may require the CHAPS details (but always advise customers to check with their bank before sending a payment).
