Problem

Up to 8.3 million people in the UK are unable to pay off debts or household bills, according to a report from the National Audit Office (NAO).

UK households saw their annual outgoings surpass their income for the first time in nearly 30 years in 2017, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Current payment options make it difficult for the payee to see the payers intent or to engage in a dialogue where issues can be resolved quickly and amicably.

Solution

Request to Pay (RtP) is part of the new payment initiative and directive and it will
be adopted and introduced through 2020

RtP Gives advance notice and historical behavioral data to a
business to plan cash flow effectively and efficiently

It offers an option that avoids the expense and need for the payee to
engage in the more normal practice of escalating nonpayment issues
through a collections department, solicitors, courts and bailiffs

Request to Pay is a pragmatic approach to receiving payments that enables the payer to continue to receive the service or product based on a flexible payment

It retains customer loyalty and engenders preferred
supplier status

It offers a new flexible way to pay bills for those who need it. With
more and more people in the UK working in zero hour contracts
and without the certainty of a full-time job, there’s a need for
companies to offer their clients some flexibility.

RtP works on the assumption that clients want to pay for products and
services without the fear and stigma normally associated with
falling into arrears.

Request to Pay gives information and data to react, manage and gain a
competitive advantage

RtP distinguishes itself from regular direct debit payments in that it
enables the payer to engage in a dialogue with the payee. If the
payer is unable to make a payment on the specified date, they can
ask for an extension, make a partial payment, send a note or even
decline to pay.

Request to Pay Market Size

Overall in the UK, people owed nearly £1.6 trillion at the end of June 2018,
up from £1.55tn a year ago.

Up to 8.3 million people in the UK are unable to pay off debts or household bills, according to a report from the
National Audit Office (NAO).

It says that HM Treasury needs to do more to understand the scale of problem debt, and how it impacts people's lives.

UK households saw their annual outgoings surpass their income for the first time in nearly 30 years in 2017, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The amount HMRC pays to private-sector debt collectors has risen by more than 500% in three years, suggesting it may be stepping up the pressure on people who cannot pay their tax bills.

The figure rose to £39.1m in 2017, which was 62% higher than the £24.1m that HMRC spent on these services in 2016, according to the accountancy firm UHY Hacker Young, which obtained the data. The figure has increased annually for several years: it stood at £6.2m in 2014, then rose to £12.5m in 2015.
