Sort code checker
More of us are using automated payments, whether that means making an internet payment via our online banking or using a Direct Debit to pay a regular bill. It is increasingly important that we are able to make automated payments smoothly and efficiently.
To help achieve this, Payments UK has created a sort code checker – which acts as a one-stop-shop for the payments industry.
The sort code checker is an online resource that lets you check that the sort code you are sending a payment to can receive Bacs Direct Credits, Faster Payments and CHAPS Payments, as well as confirm that you can set up a Direct Debit instruction on your account, and whether you can clear a cheque or pay a paper credit to that account through the cheque and credit clearing.
