Transferring money

How would you like to transfer money?

You can transfer money in different ways. For example, you can transfer an amount from your current account to your savings account. You can also choose to immediately pay for your online purchases. View the options.

Transferring money

You can transfer money anywhere in the world. You can set up standing orders for recurring payments. You can make urgent transfers. In the SEPA area, money is transferred to the beneficiary's International Bank Account Number, or IBAN.

Credit transfers are being sped up. Some SEPA credit transfers can be credited to a recipient’s account within a few seconds: every day of the year and at any time of the day, including evenings and at the weekend. This applies to ‘single’ transfers you input manually via Internet Banking or Mobile Banking, provided the recipient’s bank co-operates. The following message will then appear in the summary of the entry: ‘With the recipient: direct’. If the recipient’s bank does not yet co-operate, you will see: ‘With the recipient: within 1 working day’. Credit transfers between two Dutch ABN AMRO accounts are always credited to the recipient’s account immediately.

Direct debit

With a direct debit, you authorize a company or institution to debit a recurring or non-recurring amount from your current amount. For example, the premium for your health care insurance.

iDEAL

Pay for your online purchases from Dutch web shops with iDEAL. The owed amount is immediately transferred through Internet Banking. The web shop has already completed the payment form for you; all you have to do is agree.

Frequently asked questions

  • Can I reverse a transfer?

    That depends on the type of transfer involved.
    • If you want to refund a direct debit, you can easily do so on Internet Banking or in the Mobile Banking app. Please note: you may be charged investigation fees if you want to reverse a transfer that was made more than 56 days ago.
    • If you accidentally pay a bill twice, the company or organisation will usually transfer the excess amount back to you automatically. In this case, please contact the company or organisation directly.
    • If you make a mistake when making a transfer (for example, you enter the amount or account number (IBAN) incorrectly), ask the person to whom you have made the transfer to transfer the funds back to you. 
    • If you don’t know who the account number belongs to, you can ask ABN AMRO to get in touch with the account holder and we will ask them to transfer the funds back to you. If they do not do this, we can give you the account holder’s details so that you can contact them yourself.

  • What does IBAN stand for?

    IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number. IBAN is replacing your 9-digit account number. For example, if your account number is 123456789, your new account number will be: NL02ABNA-123456789.

  • What are the terms of an urgent transfer?

    If you enter the payment before 4:30 p.m. and your account balance is sufficient, a domestic payment will be processed within 1.5 hours. If you enter an urgent transfer at the weekend for a beneficiary at a different bank, the payment will be processed on Monday morning before 8 a.m. If an ordinary credit transfer can be credited to the recipient’s account within a few seconds, it is not necessary to make an urgent payment. We check this for you automatically.

  • How much time do I have to change or cancel a standing order?

    You can change or cancel a standing order up to the day on which it is to be executed. You cannot change or cancel it on the day that it is executed.

  • How can I transfer money securely to a foreign country?

You can switch off the option 'Foreign transfers' permanently or for a certain period. Read more about setting up your payments profile. 

  • How can I see whether a credit transfer can be credited to the recipient’s account within a few seconds?

    The following message will then appear in the summary of the entry: 'With the recipient: direct' If the recipient’s bank does not (yet) co-operate, you will see: 'With the recipient: within 1 working day'.
