* Transfers to and from an ABN AMRO account in the Netherlands are processed.
Transfers via Mobile Banking and Internet Banking which can be credited to the recipient's account within seconds, are processed. Before sending the payment order via Mobile Banking and Internet Banking you already see whether the money can reach the recipient’s account immediately.
Other transfers are immediately debited from your account, but they can only be sent to the recipient’s bank the next working day.

** Payments outside the SEPA region and urgent transfers outside the Netherlands

If you need to make a payment before a public holiday

If you want to be certain that your payment order is processed before a public holiday, don’t leave it to the last minute. Send it well before the normal time and date given as the deadline. 

Beware: for SEPA Direct Debit (both Core and B2B) different delivery deadlines are applicable during the holiday season.
