Working with your sector


We want to enable SMEs and franchises to function and thrive. As a Direct Debit and card payment provider, we use economy of scale to minimise your costs while providing a cutting-edge service.

Whether you are the franchisor collecting your monthly royalty fees or marketing funds, or the franchisee collecting client fees, customer payments or sales revenue, our card payment and Direct Debit facilities will bring faster, easier collections and improved cash flow to your business.

business growth
Being a member of the BFA gives us the perfect insight to provide tailored payment solutions to aid franchise growth in the UK.

How We Work With You

As a franchised business, trading under the franchisor’s brand name, we are able to treat you as being one sub-section of a larger, established company. To you, this means no set-up costs, low monthly admin fees, very competitive SUN rates, and you would just pay us for the transactions you put through. Our aim is to help small businesses and franchises to function and expand.

As a franchisor, using Direct Debits will mean your payments from franchised outlets will be regular, correct and on time. Our online portal and central reporting suite will give you all the tools you need to monitor and analyse all payment data, and thus inform decisions around the franchise’s business and marketing strategy.

You may also, as a franchised legal or accountancy practice for example, have interest in helping your clients to upgrade their customer payment collection processes. Speak to us about our partnership scheme, where we find ways to help us help each other, enabling greater customer service all round and improved retention at both levels.


BFA supplier status

As members of the BFA, we have an in-depth understanding of your requirements, and are trusted across the organisation.


Franchise growth

Both the franchisor and the franchisee benefit from the extra speed and reliability of cash flow that our services bring.


Marketing support

We can help launch a partnership and, as suppliers of payment facilities across the franchise, incorporate your publicity into ours.


Branded collections

Your brand identity is important, and your business name will appear on your customers’ statements, not your payment provider’s.

It’s never been easier

Setting up Direct Debit and card payment services through London & Zurich means, as well as receiving monies quickly and on time, you enjoy all the other benefits of our service.

We are a Bacs Approved Bureau, FCA accredited, and are consultants at the Bacs affiliates meetings. We are happy to be involved in decision making and policy development in the payment gateway industry, and accordingly we take our obligations very seriously.

Our security measures ensure all your data and transactions will be safe – we operate a secure portal, firewall, segregation of SUNs and funds, UK-based dual-located servers, and our systems are certified PCI:DSS Level 1 compliant. Of course, there are also the precautions at our offices: intruder detection and prevention systems, CCTV, no entry to our offices without a photo ID, and a clear desk policy to completely prevent any physical data breach.

The smooth running of your payment collections is our priority. We take a genuinely personal approach to customer service and like to build great relationships with our clients. Our support team will always be at the end of the phone to answer questions, solve problems and walk you through any of our systems.

It’s never been easier to set up with London & Zurich. Talk to our friendly support team today and let us know what you need.
