Clear & Simple Direct Debit Services
Clear Direct Debit is a Bacs Accredited Training provider, an independent Bacs Consultancy and a Bacs Approved Bureau. Our expertise has been developed working with Bacs, banks & software / CRM suppliers.
We focus on delivering an unrivalled level of service and the quality of support that we provide is second-to-none. We know the Direct Debit Scheme better than most – we are the only Direct Debit collection solution that started as a Bacs Accredited training provider. By focussing on the best outcome for our customers we get most of our business by word of mouth and recommendation.
Clear Direct Debit is definitely an organisation that has saved us a lot of money and has provided us with support in moments of need. Direct Debits are our main source of income and for most charities automated processes are not always so reliable, so it’s good that we have Clear Direct Debit as a back-up support.
We have been working with Clear Direct Debit for a few years now and they are very efficient and responsive. They have been a great support to our organisation!

We selected Clear Direct Debit in late 2017. The Direct Debit process is managed efficiently and their team of knowledgeable specialists also keep us updated on new developments. They have taken time to understand the needs of HIOWAA and are proactive in giving us relevant advice on BACS scheme rules. We look forward to a long lasting partnership with them.”
