Bacs, the not-for-profit, membership-based industry body is owned by 16 of the leading banks and building societies in the UK
Responsible for the schemes behind the clearing and settlement of automated payments in the UK including Direct Debit and Bacs Direct Credit, Bacs has been maintaining the integrity of payment related services for over 40 years.
Since its inception, over 90 billion transactions have been debited or credited to British bank accounts via Bacs. And in 2011 over 5.7 billion UK payments were made this way with a total value of £4.3 trillion.
Bacs payments are a simple, cost-effective way to make payments directly from a business bank account to another bank account. Payments take three working days to clear: they are entered into the system on the first day, processed on the second day, and cleared on the third day. This is the most popular way for suppliers and employees to be paid.
