How to make payments into your account 

To make payments into your account from within the UK, or to set up a Direct Debit payment from a Cash Transactor/Chelsea Share account, you'll need the details below:

Account name Chelsea Building Society account holder's name
Chelsea sort code 60 – 95 – 95
Account number The first 8 digits of your Chelsea account number
Reference or roll number All 10 digits of your Chelsea account number


Types of payment explained:

CHAPS are electronic payments which are treated as cleared funds as soon as they arrive in your account.
Faster Payments
Faster Payments are payments made from UK banks which provide a speedier service to customers. Examples of Faster Payments could be standing orders or internet and telephone banking payments. Faster payment will normally be credited to your account within 4 hours. 

BACS tend to be regular payment arrangements into accounts, such as your salary.
Direct Debits 
Direct Debits are regular payment arrangements made to a the third party – e.g. utility bills, insurance premiums or subscriptions.

You can pay a cheque into your account at any Yorkshire Building Society branch or agency. However, we do not accept cheque deposits into our online based accounts.

Cheques should be made payable to the account holder and not to the Society.

Our savings accounts use the Chelsea Building Society clearing cycle timeline, as explained below.
