Processing calendars


​The Bacs processing calendars are a valuable tool to help you ensure you don't miss those important processing dates over holiday periods. They also supply you with the all important Julian dates you need to process your payment files.

The 2020 and 2021 calendars are available as a PDF download and can be found in the Information Hub below or to the right of your screen.

In order to open these files you will need to have a minimum of Adobe Acrobat version 7 (or a more up to date version of Acrobat).
