Why Bacs contingency planning is essential

  • How would you submit Direct Debit or Payment files to Bacs with a Server failure?
  • What would happen if your Smart Card expired, was lost or even stolen?
  • If you were unable to submit a Bacs file as you couldn’t gain access to your office, how would deal with the consequences?
  • Your colleague has spilt coffee on your smart card reader! How will you send your Payroll file to Bacs?

Many of these situations regularly occur to businesses and are unforeseeable and often unavoidable. With a Contingency plan in place, you and your business will be safeguarded against the consequences of missing payment or collection runs.

By Interbacs being a Bacs Approved Bureau we are able to take the stress of worrying about not being able to send a file. You would simply need to inform your account manager of the submission and then they would advise you from there. With customers submitting files to Bacs via software and Cloud-based platforms, Interbacs offer a number of contingency options, designed to match your business’s needs and budget.
