Bank Automated Credit System

Also called BACS. An electronic system in the United Kingdom by which business-to-business transactions can be processed. That is, the BACS can transfer funds between banks in a more efficient fashion. Individual companies also use BACS to pay recurring bills.

BACS (Bank Automated Credit System)

a money transmission system whereby a payer instructs their commercial bank to debit a specified sum of money from their account and transfer it to a named payee's bank account. This obviates the need for the payer to issue and post a cheque to the payee and for the payee then to bank it, thus saving on time and expense. Many employers now use BACs to pay their employees' monthly salaries, and many companies use the system to transfer dividend payments to shareholders.
