1. Payments Evolved

Automation.jpgOur free white paper explores how companies can exploit new electronic payment opportunities to improve financial control and transform cash management.

This white paper provides an insight into the wide-ranging potential of payments now and in the future and outlines the steps that organisations need to put in place to exploit the new electronic payment opportunities today.


Join our next Albany Bottomline HMRC RTI webinars. During February we will  host a free educational webinar to explore the changes HMRC are making to PAYE, understanding how this will impact the payroll process and which deadlines
you will be required to meet
in order to remain compliant.

3. Industry Update...

Figures from the Cheque & Credit Clearing Company (C&CCC) show an alarming increase in fraudulent cheque use over the first six months of 2012, despite volumes of cheques reducing.  The cost of cheque fraud in that period came to almost an astounding £18 million.

Only 3% of UK businesses ready for SEPA
A report from business service provider, Steria, shows that companies in the United Kingdom are far behind European competitors in the race to prepare for the Single Euro Payments Area migration in 2014.
