Direct Debit offers thousands of businesses the
most cost effective and efficient approach to collecting payments from customers.
Using a Bureau means that you can simply send files with all your direct debit and direct credit transactions to the bureau.
The bureau will then process the file and send it to Bacs for you, removing any need for expensive processing software and reducing the risks of mistakes and missed payments and collections.
All Bacs approved Bureaux are subject to regular inspection and review by Bacs to ensure they meet the standards set by the Bacs scheme; so, you can rest assured that your payments are safe.
Simple and Secure Bacs Bureau Service. Accredited by Bacs directly.
Your file can be uploaded by logging in to our Bureau online Service through our website www.aptbacs.co.uk. Files must arrive at least three working days prior to the payment/collection date.
A notification is automatically generated and sent to APT with details of the file submitted for processing with email confirmation returned to you.
After the file has been processed, you will be notified that a Pre-Submission listing is available to be downloaded from our Bureau online Service.
An invoice for the processing run/s will be emailed to you.

“ I want to let you know about the EXCELLENT, FIRST CLASS, IMMEDIATE & PROFESSIONAL service I receive from the APT Support Team. We moved to APT as a new customer in May 2016 and the service has always been exceptional. ”
"You guys are truly the best. I wish I were exaggerating. Your software and the processes we run on it are critical to us and our clients. It is, therefore, stressful when things go wrong. So thank you for your swift support."
"The APT portal makes BACS very easy to use so the skills are quickly transferable. APT have set up templates to ensure our payrolls import directly to BACS and our team have found the import process both timesaving and straightforward."
"APT’s team was fantastic in helping us implement bureau payments system and continues to be very very helpful. A great extension to the services we provide."
The Term Service User Number or SUN refers to the unique identifier that is used by organisations and businesses collecting payments or paying payees via the bacs service.
If you are an indirect submitter, you will be linked to APT by the bank so that we can submit transactions on your behalf without the need for Smart Cards. This gives you more flexibility to use multiple devices, also allowing you to access APT BOS anywhere, without the need to install smart card reader software.
Service User Numbers or SUN’s are issued by Bacs to organisations sponsored by the UK’s major banks. Every bank will have their own application process.
It’s really simple. Call your sponsoring bank and ask them to link your SUN to APT’s Bureau Number and away you go.
