This information pack is a guide for authorised payment and e-money institution payment service providers (“non-bank PSPs”) which would like to access the UK’s interbank payment schemes directly. It outlines changes announced by the Bank of England (the Bank) which mean that non-bank PSPs can now apply to open a settlement account at the Bank.
