Solving the late payments challenge: Incomeing and The Co-operative bank launch 'Request To Pay' service

Banking technology platform provider BankiFi, in association with The Co-operative Bank, has launched a new Request to Pay (RTP) service: Incomeing. The service helps SMEs boost their cash flow by facilitating instant, cost-effective and secure collection of payments from their customers. The Co-operative Bank is the first UK provider to offer an open Request to Pay mobile application for not only its customers but also those that bank elsewhere.

Many micro and small businesses suffer as a result of high transaction fees, delayed or late payments, complex financial admin tasks and cash-flow disruption. According to research from the Federation of Small Businesses1, 30% of all payments to SMEs are late, at an average value of £6,142. Cognisant of the urgency around late payments the UK government recently announced an overhaul of the Prompt Payment Code (PPC), cutting the payment term in half to within 30 days. Further, McKinsey2 estimate that around 74% of an SME’s time is spent on ‘non-core activities’, including time-consuming administrative tasks.
