Frequently asked questions

What is a Bacs SUN?

Bacs SUN stands for Bacs Service User Number. To make or collect payments using the Bacs network, you will need a Service User Number (SUN). A Service User Number is issued by your business bank.

Is there a limit on the number and/or value of Bacs transactions I can run through AccessPay?

There is no limit to the number of transactions, or the number of files which are processed through AccessPay. This means as your volumes grow, your operating cost stays the same. This is one of our key selling points.

Which systems do AccessPay integrate with?

AccessPay integrates with all accounting, Payroll and CRM systems, as a ‘file agnostic’ platform. This includes common systems like Sage, Xero, IRIS, Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, SAP and Oracle.

What file type does AccessPay accept?

AccessPay is file agnostic – this means it accepts any type of file with no changes needed to the format. This includes Standard18, Excel, Csv, Text and many others.

How quick is the file set-up process?

The speed and agility of AccessPay means the entire project cycle is quick and painless. We combine cloud technology with a personal approach and a ‘can-do’ attitude that often enables our clients to go live under 24 hours from pre-sale.

How long does a Bacs payment take to process?

Bacs payments clear in three days. On the first day, users submit payment files to Bacs for processing (files need to be transmitted to Bacs between 7am and 10.30pm). On the second day, files are delivered to the recipients’ banks and processed. On the third day payments are simultaneously credited to the recipients’ accounts and debited from the senders account.
