About us

Payments UK is the trade association launched in June 2015 to support the rapidly growing payments industry. It aims to make the UK’s payment services better for customers by bringing its members and other stakeholders together to help make our payment services world-class. 

Payments UK has three main roles:

1. To be the payments industry’s representative body: providing an authoritative voice in the UK, Europe and globally, and working with stakeholders to share payments knowledge and expertise. 

2. To be a centre for excellence: supporting the UK payments industry to provide world class payments, building on the experience, thought leadership and project delivery expertise behind award-winning initiatives such as Paym, CASS and Faster Payments.

3. Delivering collaborative change and innovation: working on behalf of our members to benefit customers and UK plc, ensuring their needs are understood and met, both now and in the future.
