Cheshire, United Kingdom – WEBWIRE – Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Achieving FCA approval validates the quality and security of our services, and we see this as a game-changing moment in our industry.

First Capital Cashflow urges UK organisations to use the security of an outsourced managed Direct Debit bureau after the company announced it was now officially authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). 

The FCA has members from some of the largest businesses in Britain, as well as numerous high-profile banks, building societies, financial institutions and government bodies. 

First Capital Cashflow is one of the first Bacs approved organisations to be governed under the Payment Services Regulations 2009, and it hopes this milestone will encourage more organisations to use third-party sources to handle their direct debit and credit solutions in a very secure and robust platform. 

First Capital Cashflow spokeswoman Louisa Buckingham said: “It’s vital that organisations adapt to changing consumer behaviour as soon as possible. Many organisations don’t have the in-house resources to implement secure direct debit solutions, which is why companies should make use of the services offered by First Capital Cashflow.

“A lot of organisations have been reluctant to trust third party service providers in the past, but the fact we are now regulated by the FCA will put their minds at ease. The FCA will add an extra layer of protection for customers, giving them more confidence to capitalise on the growing demand for direct debit transactions.”

Ms Buckingham added that First Capital Cashflow has followed safeguarding requirements to ensure client funds remain safe and specific measures have been taken to make sure the company received FCA accreditation, which include:

• Governance arrangements;
• Internal control mechanisms; 
• Advanced risk management procedures; and 
• Sanctioning controls against money laundering and other financial crimes.

“Hopefully, businesses will now recognise that they are in safe hands,” she continued.

“Achieving FCA approval validates the quality and security of our services, and we see this as a game-changing moment in our industry.

“So why risk your funds with another organisation that is not accredited?”
