BACS Direct Credits are used to pay suppliers, payroll and other listed payments. BACS Direct Debits are used to collect money from a payee.

Autopay Online and Autopay Online Plus cater for your BACS payment needs, allowing you to make and manage payments, and access BACS reports, all via the Autopay Online platforms.
