A different approach to your charity Direct Debit service

In our world, there’s no such thing as ‘just a Direct Debit’, and our charity Direct Debit services help you to not only collect your payments, but increase efficiency, cost-effectiveness and security, and fundraising returns.

Our managed charity Direct Debit service

The Woods Valldata charity Direct Debit offering is a fully managed service, providing a robust and highly cost-effective way to collect, manage and monitor your payments. As a BACS-approved bureau, we efficiently manage all aspects of your Direct Debits, such as setting up new instructions, submissions to BACS and crediting funds to your nominated bank account.

We also provide a full suite of reports so you can easily monitor your payments and clearly understand each transaction’s status. Data exports are written individually to your requirements to upload directly into your database and aid your reconciliation process.

Using our services saves you any ongoing investment in software and provides full peace of mind in terms of handling peaks of activity or providing holiday or sickness cover for your staff. Our account management team are experienced and knowledgeable and will work with you to understand your goals, discuss ideas, and oversee the setup and ongoing management of your account.
