Access to UK Payment Schemes for Non-Bank Payment Service Providers

This Access to UK Payment Schemes for Non-Bank Payment Service Providers information pack is a guide for authorised payment and e-money institution payment service providers (“non-bank PSPs”) that would like to access the UK’s interbank payment schemes directly, as opposed to via a sponsor bank. It outlines the framework by which non-bank PSPs can apply to open a settlement account at the Bank of England (the “Bank”), in order to become a direct participant of a payment scheme.
