Do you have a contingency plan in place for your Direct Debit processing?
For any business processing Bacs payments, having a contingency plan in place is essential to the whole payment process as recommended by Bacs:
Failure to collect Direct Debit payments or pay suppliers and staff can be catastrophic for any business.
Staff holidays, sickness, locked smartcards, software failure or even natural disasters could suddenly and unexpectedly disrupt your cash flow.
You need to ensure that cash keeps flowing and remove the prospect of panic if the worst-case scenario happens.
In the event of an emergency process or as part of a longer term contingency plan, your Service User Number (SUN) would be linked to the First Capital Cashflow Bureau number
