If you want, we can help you to transfer your settlement services from another bank to LHV Pank, doing all the required operations for you.

At LHV, a standing order means that LHV performs the required transfers on your behalf, on the date specified in the contract. At LHV, it is possible to conclude a standing order agreement for in-house and European payments.

For the standing order, you can designate:

  • the beneficiary
  • the payment date and the interval after which the payment repeats (e.g. week, month, year), as well as
  • the method of transfer, and the sum.

You can choose between three options for the transferring of funds:

  1. On the payment date, we will deduct the agreed sum from your account and transfer it to the recipient. We shall check whether there are sufficient funds for the payment on the payment date and on the two following days.
  2. On the payment date, we will transfer the entire available balance of your account to the recipient. We shall check whether there are sufficient funds for the payment only on the payment date.
  3. You determine the amount which has to remain in your account on the payment date – we will transfer the remaining available funds to the recipient. We shall check whether there are sufficient funds for the payment only on the payment date.

On the payment date you only need to take care that the required amount is available in your account on the right date and that the transaction limits are sufficient. If there are insufficient funds in the account at that time or the transaction limit is insufficient for a standing order payment, the standing order shall not be fulfilled.

The standing order agreement shall remain valid and this shall not hinder further payments (provided that there are sufficient funds on the account and the transaction limit is sufficient at the time of the standing order payment).

Payment import makes it possible to upload a payment file in the Internet Bank and to sign payments there (one by one or in batches) and to view, amend, and subsequently delete them in the Internet Bank. Upload the payment file here: Daily banking → Payments → Import of payments. Also review the format.

If you want to fully automate the importing of the payment file, use LHV Connect. Your accountant can use the solution to make payments and keep track of incoming and outgoing payments directly in the accounting software.

Instant notifications are sent to clients who are using the LHV Mobile Bank. Both the activation and usage of the instant notification service is free of charge.

We send a notification for every payment or e-invoice received, transaction limit being reached, failed transaction and expiry of a bank card.

A business client can order instant notifications on payments through LHV Connect. Find out more about LHV Connect.

A predefined payment is a pre-filled payment order saved in the Internet Bank.

Payments can be saved in the Internet Bank, by selecting Daily banking → Payments → Predefined payments. A regular payment can also be added to the predefined payments after signing the payment.

Starting a payment from a predefined payment is most convenient in the Mobile Bank. There, only the initials are required to find the recipient and the payment info and there is no need to save the payment separately.
