What is a Bureau User Number (BUN)?

A unique identifiable number allocated to a Bacs Approved Bureau to identify it to Bacs. Starting with a “B” and followed by five digits, the BUN is used alongside Bacs Approved Bureau software.

Do I need a Bureau User Number (BUN)?

You do not require a BUN to process client payments if you use the AccessPay Bureau. You’ll effectively be linking your client’s Service User Numbers (SUN) with our BUN and then processing your Bureau payments through the AccessPay Bureau – we are a registered Bacs Approved Bureau.

What is a Service User Number (SUN)?

A SUN (Service User Number), also known as an Originator ID, is a six-digit number granted to a business which allows them to connect to Bacs, Direct Debit and Faster Payment Services.

How much does it cost to process Bacs payments with AccessPay?

There are no direct costs, other than our fixed yearly fee, charged by AccessPay. But your bank or building society may charge their own costs for processing Bacs payments, and these charges vary.

What file types does AccessPay accept?

We’ll make sure your files always reach your bank in the correct format. Due to our powerful mapping engine, AccessPay is yet to encounter a file format we cannot work with. Common file types we accept include CSV, XLS, MT, DAT and XML.

Is AccessPay FCA regulated? Do you have Bacs certification?

Yes, AccessPay holds Bacs certification as well as a small business user license; ISO27001, ISO22301, FPS and SWIFT certifications. Also, we have been registered with the FCA since 2012. We are now also authorised by the FCA to serve as third-party Account Information (AISP) and Payment Initiation (PISP) Service Providers, allowing us to offer open banking-related services.
