Tidal Energy Ltd v Bank of Scotland plc [2014] EWCA Civ 1107; [2014] WLR (D) 369

‘Rapid electronic payment between accounts using the CHAPS transfer system was made by reference to the sort code, bank name and account number, not the customer name, in order to process the payment within the maximum time of 1.5 hours. The CHAPS transfer form was to be construed in accordance with that banking practice to give it commercial sense and accordingly a bank was not liable to a customer for a payment made into an account at a different bank by reference to the sort code and account number on the transfer form completed by the customer, but with a different customer name from that on the form.’
