BRAND NEW Approved BACS Bureau Service
21 Jan
The Entrust BACS Bureau Service is accurate, quick and simple! Manage your day-to-day financial transactions securely and cost effectively with our BACS Bureau service. Payroll Creditor and supplier payments Payment collection Fees refunds Why choose Entrust BACS Bureau? A flexible bureau Other bureau services may insist on data being sent via one route and in a particular format, which could result in you having to purchase conversion software. We’ll adapt to your needs. We use several file layouts, including FMS. We can also create bespoke layouts for other formats (this would incur a cost). We’ve yet to find a product we cannot collect from! Secure transmission We send all files via secure transmission through BACSTEL-IP so you can log into the BACS website to check progress and download reports on the same day. The modulus checking system checks all sort codes and account numbers before your file is transmitted. No special software required You won’t need a swipe-card or any special software to be installed. We offer two collection options: 1. Send it to our website by encrypting the file with a password. Once this is logged, we’ll send an acknowledgement confirming the totals and processing date. 2. Email the file to us encrypted with a password and let our team know it’s on its way. Business as usual, even if you change bank If you use your bank’s BACS Bureau service, and you change bank, you may need to purchase and install a new product. By using a commercial bureau, or a product to transmit directly, changing bank will not affect your BACS transmission. AUDDIS Our Bureau can send Automated Direct Debit Instruction Service (AUDDIS) files from Fees7, Direct Debits, and any other packages.

Holocaust Memorial Day
17 Jan
Holocaust Memorial Day takes place on 27th January, the date that marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau – the largest Nazi death camp and a powerful symbol of horrors of the Holocaust. On that day we remember the millions of Jews murdered during the Holocaust and other groups who were killed under Nazi persecution: Roma and Sinti people (sometimes referred to as ‘gypsies’), disabled people, gay people, Jehovah’s Witnesses, political opponents and many others. The Holocaust (The Shoah in Hebrew) was the attempt by the Nazis and their collaborators to murder all the Jews in Europe. From the time they assumed power in Germany in 1933, the Nazis used propaganda, persecution, and legislation to deny human and civil rights to German Jews. With the outbreak of World War Two in 1939, the systematic murder of Europe’s Jews began – a plan known by the Nazis as ‘The Final Solution to the Jewish Problem’. By the end of the Holocaust, six million Jewish men, women and children had been murdered in ghettos, mass-shootings, in concentration camps and extermination camps. After the Holocaust, the world said, ‘Never Again’. But humanity has failed to learn lessons from the Holocaust, and genocides continue to happen around the world, to this day. On Holocaust Memorial Day we remember the millions of men, women and children, who have been murdered in the genocides which followed – in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. Today people are still discriminated against because of their religion, their race, their sexuality, or another element of their identity. Whilst we are not at immediate risk of genocide here in the UK, hate speech and prejudice are frequently seen online, and the number of hate crimes recorded each year has been increasing. This is why we have to teach young people about what happened and remember it. The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2019 is 'Torn from home' and encourages to reflect on how the enforced loss of a safe place to call 'home' is part of the trauma faced by anyone experiencing persecution and genocide. This theme also allows for reflections on how we can support those escaping persecution today and who may be looking to make a new home in our own communities. It leads to discussions of how the lessons of the past can inform our lives today and ensure that everyone works together to create a safer, better future.
