Property Management

Collecting fixed and variable rents by direct debit is important to cash flow. IG Property Services Ltd and Baskeys are two of our property management clients who benefit from our direct debit bureau services. 

Local Authorities

Local Authorities typically process large volumes of direct debits in-house with their own software. Unfortunately, things can go wrong, loss of Internet connectivity, software/hardware failure, loss of BACS signing cards are typical failure scenarios. We provide contingency services to a number of local authority clients.


Many dentists have patient plan systems which require regular collections via direct debit. Secure Collections has developed a web portal and processes direct debits for ‘My Dental Plan’ a service which collects direct debits on behalf of multiple dental practices.
