How to move your money at Bestinvest

Frequently asked questions

Yes, you can request a CHAPS payment. There is a £35 charge for this service. You must request your transfer over the phone or by email before 3pm for a same-day payment. However, it is important that you have not requested a withdrawal through the Online Investment Service before requesting a CHAPS payment as this would trigger a BACS payment.

There are three ways you can add cash to your account.

The first option is to choose the account you want to add cash to, select the 'Add cash' tab and then select the ‘Add cash’ button.
