Transaction Codes (collections)
Two digit transaction codes are used to identify the type of payment being processed. Direct Debit collections use 4 different 2 digit codes.
Every service user must identify a first collection and subsequent ongoing collections, therefore every service user must use codes:
01 - first collection
17 - on-going collections
However not all service users will represent collections on receipt of an unpaid debit or are aware of a final collection prior to the collection being made. These codes should be used where possible:
18 - re-presentment
19 - final collection
The use of transaction code 18 can only be made within 30 days of the original collection date and must be for exactly the same amount as the previously unsuccessful collection. If an 18 is used, no advance notice is necessary. A service user can represent as many times as is necessary within 30 days.
