1.3 million people are members of credit unions in the UK alone, and millions more worldwide. All UK credit unions are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA). As with all banks and building societies, they require robust financial systems, training of staff, and internal/ external audit systems. Insurance policies protect member’s saving from fraud, theft and dishonesty. And with credit unions regulated in a similar way to banks and building societies, you money is protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
The credit union provides comprehensive support, guiding the company through the launch, operating the scheme and dealing with all enquires. All the employer has to do is facilitate monthly deductions from salary, with a single monthly exchange of data and BACS funds transfer.
It’s a very low cost benefit. All services are provided to the business by the credit union without charge, so the cost of setting up deductions from payroll will be the only expense.
Major UK employers who already offer their staff a payroll deduction savings and loans scheme through a credit union include BAE Systems, Royal Mail, NHS, British Airways, Tata Group, Go-Ahead Group and Stagecoach. The CIPP actively promote credit unions.
