FD Online charging

FD Online tariff PDF

Your FD Online invoice will be sent to your system administrator (via a secure mail within FD Online) on the first business day of each month. Your nominated Co-operative business current account will then be debited 14 days later. Where this falls on a weekend or bank holiday, the charge will be debited the following business day.

  • If you would prefer for invoices to be sent to another user your administrator can request this using the secure mail service within FD Online.
  • If you submit Bacs via FD Online you will be invoiced and charged via FD Online not via your account tariff and invoice.

If you wish to cancel the FD Online service, a signatory/named person on the account can send a secure message through FD Online. You will need to provide one month's notice. Please note you will be charged for the previous month, once we have completed your request to cancel the service.

Bacs charging

Depending on how you submit your Bacs files will affect how you are charged and the costing.

If you submit via FD Online please see the FD Online tariff and charging information.

If you submit through another method you can refer to the Bacs tariff for charges. Standard Bacs charges are invoiced on a calendar month basis, pre-notified the following month, and then charged the month after. For example; Bacs files submitted 1-31 January, would be included in your February invoice, and charged on or around the 5 March.


If you submit with a bsecure card please refer to your bsecure tariff. bsecure fees will be charged separately from your file and transaction fees on your account tariff invoice. Dates of your account tariff invoicing and charging can be found within the account tariff charging section. bsecure invoices will be issued when a card or card reader is requested or when a renewal is due and will debit your billing account 14 days from the invoice date. Where this falls on a weekend or bank holiday, the charge will be debited the following business day.
