          Cleansing facility = laundry?

                    am neither Val, (touch wood) but you're right about them being scum. Have heard few people are being caught out with this, basically being a facilitator for money laundering

                      And then there's the Single European Payments Area system.

                      My salary gets paid on the same date every month. When payday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, then my salary is in my account on the Friday before.

                      The reason this happens is that my employer pays it in early enough for this to happen.

                      But that won't happen now.

                      Now the bank will sit on my salary for three days (Fri, Sat & Sun with no compensation to me of course) before making it available.

                      Their excuse for this is that it's SEPA rules - and that much is true.

                      This is a European-wide system - not justy Euro area so the money we're talking about is staggering.

                      Let's imagine you live in a country where one million people are paid monthly with salaries directly into the bank on, say, the 26th of the month.

                      The bank has that money for free for three days in January, April, July and October 2014 when the 26th falls on a weekend.

                      Lets say the average monthly salary is €3,000 X 12 days X 1m = €36bn - a nice little interest earner

                      That's yet ANOTHER €36bn subsidy to the banks by wage earners.

                      Now that is a proper scam

                        That's a new one alright.. get paid on the 25th each month, as with you, normally is in early if it's the weekend.

                          I'm not sure I follow. You have a contract of employment that specifies when you are paid, and hopefully has an accommodation in it around what happens if that date falls on a non-business day. Your employer needs to meet the usual payment deadlines in order to credit your account on the specified day. If they meet the cut off then you get the money into your account the next business day. There is no increased timeframe given to a bank in which to process payments.

                          http://business.aib.ie/help/sepa-faq

                          The clearing cycle for a SEPA credit transfer is very similar to the clearing cycle for existing domestic electronic payments. The payment file must be submitted to AIB by 3.00pm one business day before the requested execution date.For example, if the beneficiary is supposed to receive funds on the 28th March, the file must be submitted to AIB by 3.00pm on 27th March.

                            My company pays my salary in advance of the specified date. Always has so no change there. In common with everyone else I know who is paid monthly the money is available on the Friday on the occasions when payday falls on a weekend. So the bank isn't advancing the money to me merely facilitating its customers.
                            Let's say you're supposed to be paid on the Monday. Your bank would have to have processed that payment on the previous business day. Friday. As I'm sure you've discovered banks don't do just in time.

                            In any case SEPA explicitly states the funds' availability cannot happen before the set date regardless of how far in advance the payment is processed

                              given the negative rates in some currencies (CHF, DKK etc) and the low rates it would actually cost them money in certain countires if this were true.
