We don't credit electronic Euro Payments from and to an account at Rabobank UK, Belgium and Germany on weekends and on bankholidays. We processes your payment the next working day. Look at the tab 'Euro payment' for the processing times of Euro payments, per bankholiday.We process the world payments you have entered in the weekend or on an international holiday from or to a RNB account in UK, Belgium or Germany the next business day. The beneficiary's bank determines when the money is credited to the beneficiary's account. Usually this is on the same day as the bank has received the payment. We have no influence on that. Take a look at the 'World Payment' tab for the processing times for World Payments per bankholiday.
