RW: Notice re
identification of payments
We are having some difficulty in identifying the purpose of some payments we are receiving and this is leading to increased admin work and may result in your payment not being correctly attributed.
Performance donations through Bellboard and Paypal are highly automated and should present no problems.
For cheques also it should be straightforward if there is a note with the cheque making it clear what it is for – back numbers, merchandise, account (please specify) top-up, or a donation for a specific performance.
In the 70% Challenge article, we requested: “… please make any payment by BACS before you send in the performance and note in the email or letter how much you have transferred and whether for the performance or account”
BACS printouts may give us very little detail; just the name of the payer and the amount so it is important to let us know exactly what the payment you have made is for. An email to our acounts dept can easily give us what we need to know.
Payments via BACS do give you the opportunity for a reference (usually 18 digits). We would appreciate your using this facility to help tell us what the payment is for. “DON [ation] peal XXYYZZ [date]” or “DON QP XXYYZZ” or “DON AC + brief a/c reference”. References may also be made to SUBS renewals (with your name) or MERCHandise or BACK number purchases; the date of the order would help. It is sometimes difficult to differentiate payments from people with the same surname, so, if space allows and you think there might be an identification problem, your full initials could be included.
Thanks for your co-operation.
