Approved bureaux


Over half of the organisations using the Bacs service make their payment submissions through one of our approved bureaux rather than submitting directly to Bacs. Bacs inspectors review the appropriateness of the bureaux to ensure they meet the standards set by the scheme​.

The Bacs approved bureaux directory is an alphabetical listing of all Bacs approved bureaux. A copy of the directory can be found in the Information Hub below or to the right of your screen.​

The directory is maintained by the Bacs Approved Bureau team based on information that is received from bureaux. If you are a commercial bureau and would like this information to be updated or amended, please contact the Bacs Approved Bureau team.


The Bacs Approved Bureau (BAB) Scheme undertakes regular inspections that assess the technical competence and operational integrity of BABs. Bacs does not undertake any assessment nor make any representation in respect of the suitability or otherwise of any approved bureaux for any other purpose. Accordingly a potential user of a BAB should obtain appropriate independent professional advice.

As the name of the Scheme implies, the BAB Scheme operates at bureau number rather than user number level and operations at user number level are outside the scope of the BAB Scheme. Responsibility for user number operations remain with the Bacs member sponsoring the user number; a list of Bacs members appears on this website.
