    Bulk Payments – Direct Debit Collection References

    When submitting a bulk payment file to collect Direct Debits, please ensure that the collection references used for each transaction within the file are a minimum of six upper case alpha-numeric characters to ensure the file is not rejected by Bacs.


    In addition, the reference used must be the same as that used on the original Direct Debit Instruction to avoid the collection instruction being refused by the account holding Bank.
