How long will my bank to bank transfer take?
Bank to bank transfer times can vary across financial institutions depending on the type of transfer you make.
If you’re making a traditional inter-bank transfer it will take 1-3 business days. If you use NPP Faster Payments or a PayID it can be near real-time.
The fastest way to receive money into a Heritage Bank account from another financial institution is via NPP Faster Payments to a PayID or BSB and Account Number.
The New Payments Platform allows you to receive a faster payment from anyone whose financial institution is a participant and who has an eligible account. If you’re unsure if your sender can use this service, check for participating financial institutions on the NPP Website.
Alternatively, your sender could use a traditional inter-bank transfer which will take 1-3 business days from any financial institution.
The fastest way to transfer money from Heritage Bank to another financial institution is using NPP Faster Payments on our Mobile Banking App.
If the account you’re sending money to is eligible to receive NPP Faster payments, then you will receive an option to make the payment ‘Within 2 hours’. If you can't see this option, then the account you are sending to is not eligible to receive an NPP transfer. The transfer must go as a traditional inter-bank transfer and it could take 1-3 business days.
If you transfer money from Heritage Online on a desktop or mobile browser to another financial institution, it will take 1-3 business days to arrive.

Who owns Heritage Bank Australia?
Heritage Bank is an Australian customer-owned bank. This means we're owned by our customers, not shareholders. Instead of pursuing massive profits, our customer-owned status means we can focus on putting people first through award-winning service, great products, low fees and competitive interest rates.
In March 2023, Heritage Bank entered a new phase in our history, by merging with People’s Choice Credit Union to create Australia’s leading member-owned banking organisation. While we have now come together as a single organisation, we will continue to operate under the Heritage Bank and People’s Choice brands for an interim period while we continue our integration process. After that, we will adopt a single new brand.
We're committed to helping our customers through good times, and times of hardship, with genuine service and support.
