Barclays Planned Maintenance
Barclays will be carrying out planned maintenance on their Faster Payments Infrastructure on Sunday 4th February between 4am to 8am this may have an impact on processing durations for some declarations
If you use Barclays please be aware:
For payments in CDS Cash Account or Duty Deferment Account, Faster Payments is the only bank payment scheme which would normally process on Saturday’s and Sunday’s, so there is no alternative during the outage. The recommendation would be to pay into the account in advance of the outage to ensure sufficient balance was already present.
For Immediate Payment the alternative during the outage would be via the Online Payment Service using Corporate Credit Card or Debit Card. This doesn’t require any change to the declarations, you can choose to make the payment via any supported route, no matter which of the specific Immediate Payment MOP codes you use.
In either scenario, no declarations will be rejected, but they will be held pending release or clearance if the required funds are delayed by the use of Faster Payments during the Barclays outage.
