UK Payments Council Provides Online Tool to Check Payment Options

The UK Payments Council has "relaunched its Sort Code Checker online tool, extending it beyond Faster Payments to cover Bacs, CHAPS, cheques and paper credits. By inputting the sort code of the account a payment is being sent to, a customer can see whether the account can receive a Faster Payment, Bacs Credit or CHAPS payment. Customers will also be able to see if an account allows a Direct Debit instruction to be set up and if a cheque or paper credit can be paid into the account through the clearings. The Checker, which stores all the UK’s 20,000 sort codes, can be found on the UK Payments website." READ MORE »
