From 26 May 2023, banks will process transactions 365 days of the year including weekends and public holidays.

We won’t change our payment processing:

  • Due dates for payments will still move to the following business day if they fall on a weekend or public holiday.
  • We will pay Working for Families Tax Credits payments early when they fall on a public holiday.
  • We won’t send funds to banks for processing on weekends or public holidays.

Payments to Inland Revenue will show with the effective date of the bank transfer. This date may be a weekend or public holiday if your bank processed the payment over that time.
