Please note

A delay may occur in processing a BPAY® payment instruction that has been authorised where: 

  • there is a public or bank holiday on the day after the day you have instructed NAB to carry out a BPAY® payment instruction 
  • the payment instructions were authorised either on a day which is not a business day or after the cut-off time for a particular business day 
  • a biller or other financial institution fails to comply with its obligations under the BPAY® scheme. 

Processing delays are usually resolved within one business day.
