Can Faster Payments be reversed?

Once sent, a Faster Payment cannot be reversed - this means the recipient can be sure the funds are theirs as soon as they appear in their account. It’s vital to double-check the sort code and account number before sending a payment: payments are processed only using these numbers, and getting them wrong is like sending a letter with the wrong address and post code. If you make a mistake (such as paying the wrong beneficiary, or sending the wrong amount) unfortunately there is no guarantee that money can be recovered.
