A Direct Debit Bureau Contingency Service
Even when you operate an in-house Direct Debit Solution and process your own Direct Debit collections it makes good business sense to have an established contingency plan in place with a Bacs Approved Bureau. Software can fail, staff can change and natural disasters such as power-cuts can all interfere with your ability to process Direct Debit collections in a timely and efficient manner. If you have an established Contingency plan and have linked your Service User Number to a Bureau, the Bureau can process collections on your behalf on those occasions when you are unable to do so, meaning reduced likelihood of missed or failed collections.
Linking your Service User Number to a Bureau can be as simple as contacting your sponsoring bank and verbally requesting the link to be made. The rewards are peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a back-up plan in place to allow for unforeseen consequences.
