BACS Security Update

BACS Security Upgrade

Upgrade your BACS Security by 19th September.

Denise Love - Menzies AccountantBacs are upgrading their systems to improve security on 19 September 2016.

This is part of an industry-wide security update that Bacs have been communicating directly with Bacs service users.

Your business must make sure its systems are compatible with these changes, or you may not be able to make or collect your Bacs payments after they take effect.

Essentail BACS Security Update Checks

  • If you use Bacstel-IP to submit payments directly, speak to your Bacs Approved Software Solutions provider and check that your software will still be compliant.
  • If you use a Bureau to submit Bacs payments, speak to them to confirm they will be able to process payments for you.
  • If you use the Payment Services Website, make sure you’re using a compatible browser.

Please visit www.bacs.co.uk/SHA-2 for full details of the changes, including compatible systems and browsers.

For more information on the above, please contact Denise Love – Senior Manager Payroll Bureau – by emailing dlove@menzies.co.uk or by calling 01483 758919.
