(PRWEB UK) 5 March 2013
Bacs approved Bureau, First Capital Cashflow, which provides bespoke, secure and flexible payments processing services is taking part in this year's Big Break campaign run by Bacs - the industry body responsible for Direct Debit payments.
First Capital Cashflow hopes to raise thousands of pounds for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), the leading charity offering information, support and advice to almost two million people with sight loss via their involvement in the Big Break.
The campaign is designed to encourage consumers and businesses alike to settle their bills by direct debit, a payment method which benefits both the payer and beneficiary. Bacs are funding a prize draw for both consumers and businesses to be in with a chance of winning either £12,000 towards household bills (for consumers) or £2,000 towards commercial bills (for businesses). If a payer instates a new direct debit with a participating organisation/business during the qualifying period (1st February 2013 – 30th June 2013), then they will be automatically entered in to the respective consumer or business draw.
As an approved Bureau, processing direct debit transactions on behalf of hundreds of organisations/businesses, First Capital Cashflow will make a charitable donation on behalf of all its clients for each and every new direct debit.
Bacs themselves will also be giving away £5,000 each month of the campaign to 100 charities and good causes which will be determined by a public vote to nominate a good these good causes. The good cause with the most votes each month will receive £2,000, the runner up £1,000 and the remaining £2,000 will be divided equally amongst the runners up.
Simon Reynolds, marketing manager for First Capital Cashflow, commented:
“The Big Break is a proven campaign that stands to benefit all parties involved. Direct debit ensures a business can manage its fixed or variable recurring collections efficiently and improve cash flow as well as streamline credit. At the same time the payer benefits by accessing what is a convenient and secure form of payment. It’s great that Bacs are willing to put up a prize to incentive payers to settle their invoices by direct debit. As a Bureau we will also be donating a percentage of our processing fees to the RNIB as our nominated good cause.”
