Chief Executive of the TSB bank, Paul Pester, poses outside the bank's Baker Street branch in London September 9, 2013. Britain's 200-year-old TSB bank returned to the high street on Monday after an 18-year absence, the result of action by regulators and the government to introduce greater competition for the country's banks following several consumer scandals.

  • Payments to and from TSB bank experiencing issues on Thursday morning.
  • Some customers complain they have been left without their salary on payday.
  • Bank apologises to customers, saying it’s “working as hard and as fast as we can to resolve any issues.”

LONDON — TSB is investigating problems with standing orders and bank-to-bank transfers, leaving some customers without their salary on payday.

The bank is experiencing issues with payments on Thursday and a customer service assistant confirmed to BI that the bank has been aware of problems since around 7 a.m. (Disclosure: the author is a TSB customer affected by the issue.)

The assistant said it is unclear whether the issue is specific to TSB or affecting other banks too.

Some TSB customers took to Twitter to complain of issues:
