Book Transfer


Book Transfer
The transfer of funds from one deposit account to another at the same financial institution. Book transfer is a way to eliminate check clearing float because unlike with interbank transfers, there is no wait time for intrabank transfers.




Check clearing float refers to the time between when a check is deposited and when it is cleared. If someone deposits a check today, there is a time difference between depositing the check and when the check will be paid. This time lapse enables the paying bank to earn some extra interest on those funds.
