Funds Transfer (FAST)

FAST was introduced in response to the increasing demand from consumers and businesses for faster and more efficient funds transfers. Currently, it can take up to three working days for customers to transfer money from one banking account to another across banks. With FAST, it is almost instant.

The decision to participate in FAST is based on individual banks’ and non-financial institutions’ commercial considerations. More banks and NFIs may join at later date.

Yes. FAST is secure and adopts the same security standards established by the banking industry in Singapore for funds transfers.

Customers with savings or current accounts at the participating banks can use FAST.

No, FAST only enables funds transfer between accounts of the participating banks in Singapore. Funds between a participating and a non-participating bank can be transferred via eGIRO.

No, FAST can only be used for Singapore Dollar funds transfers between bank customer accounts of the participating banks in Singapore.

FAST is available 24x7 via UOB Personal Internet Banking, UOB TMRW App and all ATMs.

Availability of FAST via UOB branches is dependent on branch operating hours. FAST performed via UOB branches will be effected within the same business day if the application is submitted on Monday to Friday (excluding public holiday), by 4pm.

For incoming funds transfers via FAST which are performed (i) after approximately 10.30pm on any day from Monday to Saturday (other than a public holiday); or (ii) on a Sunday or public holiday, UOB will effect the value date of such FAST transactions as the next business day. Such FAST transactions will be posted to your UOB account the next business day and prevailing interest (if applicable) will accrue from the next business day onwards.

Fees will be waived for FAST performed via internet banking, mobile banking and ATMs. A fee of S$10 per transaction will apply for FAST transactions done at UOB branches.

Do exercise caution when you key in the amount and bank account number for any electronic funds transfer services via UOB ATMs, UOB Personal Internet Banking or UOB TMRW app. As funds transferred via FAST will be credited to the recipient’s bank account almost instantly, please contact your bank immediately if you have made a wrong funds transfer.
