Bill payment specialist Allpay has scooped a multi-million-pound contract with the Ministry of Justice to help Its shift towards direct debits payments.

The contract for “key payment facilitation/collection” cements an existing 12-year relationship between the Herefordshire-based business and the government department.

Allpay says it currently collects more than £31m on behalf of the MoJ.

Allpay currently works with several government departments helping them with the collection and receipt of revenues.

The contract, which is potentially worth close to £2m, is guaranteed for two years, with a further two-year option. 

It covers the provision of payment cards, direct debit mandates and barcoded payment methods.

“We are confident this partnership will continue to provide a simple, convenient and secure payment experience for all payers,” said Allpay owner and managing director Tony Killeen.
