It started of being a Monday transfer but my Uk bank (TSB) blocked it as a suspicious transaction and because they did not contact me it then took another couple of day's to discover and to put right ( basically because I had made a small transfer in the morning and then a much bigger one in the afternoon, which they did not like.
But but just wondered if 4 or 5 days would also be included with Saturday and Sunday or don't the clearing banks work out of hours.
I will be now be asking my account manager next week when I talk with him anyway.
