Reply To: BACS payments


Where we differ is that you expect people to [i:9337f5d475]ask[/i:9337f5d475] for a different payment method where they don’t want BACS (and not everybody is necessarily going to do that), whereas I think a choice should be offered from the start, which is not a huge difference of opinion. But what I do object to is comments such as junderwo’s about “coercing” people into obtaining a bank account. I am just a little concerned that there may be some authorities who are moving to BACS only for the predominant reason of the LA’s own financial interest, and not giving full consideration to people’s wants or needs.
