Christmas and New Year 2022 – Bacs Processing Dates
Christmas is once again nearly upon us, and as we approach the busy festive season now is a great time to think ahead so you can relax and enjoy the festivities knowing that business is all in order.
With banks closed on December 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, and 31st as well as January 1st,and 2nd, knowing what dates to commit your files for collections on any specific date can be particularly confusing over the holidays. To help, we have prepared a guide for you to follow to ensure your files are collected when you need them.
Bacs processing works on a 3-day cycle:
Day 1: Input Day → Day 2: Processing Day → Day 3: Payment Day
You need to send your file to Bacs two working days prior to the payment date (day 3). If you have any questions about this, please let us know – or maybe it’s time to consider BACS accredited training.
These dates are the latest you would need to submit your files to collect on the earliest possible dates:
|Latest Submission Date (before midday)||Processing Date||Payment Arrival Date|
